Before the game, Breast Cancer Care
will be holding a Bucket Collection around the Cardiff City Stadium. Rachael Power
from Breast Cancer Care Cymru
gave her thoughts on the day: “We are a charity that receives less than 1% government funding. As a result we rely on individuals and organisations like Cardiff City Football Club to give us these opportunities to raise awareness and money. Your support will help to ensure that our services remain free. Thank you to everyone who donated to our bucket collection before the game. If you missed our collectors visit: www.breastcancercare.org.uk/donate
to make a donation to us.”
As we have reported across the past few days, this weekend’s fixture at Cardiff City Stadium against Wolverhampton Wanderers has been dedicated to celebrating the work of Kick It Out, football’s equality and inclusion organisation, as part of its ‘Season of Action’.

RAGSY RETURNS AT HALF TIME
Having performed on the Foster’s Stage for our last home game, we are pleased to welcome Welsh singer/songwriter Ragsy to Cardiff City Stadium today. This time he will be joining us as a guest in hospitality and will be helping with the half time 50/50 draw, while telling us about his debut album ‘Ouch!!!’, which is available to preorder now.
Taking inspiration from his own life experiences, Ragsy’s heartfelt lyrics perfectly align with his raw, classic rock-inspired vocals. Crafted over a two-year period following his time on BBC’s The Voice in 2013, mentored by Sir Tom Jones; ‘Ouch!!!’ is a record of the highs and lows, where Ragsy’s distinctive voice tells an honest and impassioned tale of life’s unpredictability.
!’ will be released the 1st March on CD and also through all major download sites including iTunes and amazon, and is available to pre-order now, with a secret track – the studio version of ‘Feels Like Home
’. But there’s no need to wait until then to hear the inimitable sound of this talented singer-songwriter; visit youtube.com/RagsyMusic
