Mental Health Foundation Bucket Collection At Notts County V Chesterfield

6 February 2015

A group of Notts fans will be collecting donations this weekend…

Louise Manley, 33, from Keyworth is from a family of Magpies.

Her Dad Ray Spendlove first visited Meadow Lane when he was eight years old. Now 72, he still regularly watches Notts and goes to every home game.

The love for the club started when Ray's Dad and his sister Carol went to watch the football week in, week out.

Carol even watched Notts play in 1971, straight after their wedding ceremony, such was her dedication.

Louise's aunt, also named Carol, suffered with bipolar throughout her life and sadly passed away in September 2012.

In honour of Louise's aunt, she will taking part in the gruelling London Marathon on the 26th of April I will be running the London

Louise told the Official Site: "I've decided to run to raise much needed awareness and funds for the Mental Health Foundation. This will be my first marathon so I have committed myself to a great deal of fundraising and training. 

"My family have all been raised as Notts County supporters, so I contacted them for help with my fundraising and they very kindly
accepted. On Saturday the 7th of February I will be joined by family and friends collecting for the Mental Health foundation before the Notts County V Chesterfield game."

The club hope Louise and company raise plenty this weekend and wish her all the best of luck in the capital later on this year.
