The charity event is to raise funds for families and children in Ukraine. All funds raised will be donated to UNICEF to aid the good cause.

There has been a change of date published previously for the Mikey Bell Memorial and charity football match between Wakefield Athletic and Mikey Bell’s Select.

The game has been moved from Sunday, July 2 to Saturday, August 6 due to a double-booking of the venue at West Yorkshire Sports & Social Club.
