Bellamy matches fans’ donation

Craig Bellamy has made a donation of over ?4000 for the children

of a woman killed in a series of hit and run incidents in

Cardiff.

The 31-year-old mother of three, Karina Menzies, died in the

collisions on October 19 and a collection at the Bluebirds’ clash

with Watford last Tuesday saw ?4,155 raised for her family by fans

– a total matched by the Welshman.

In addition to that amount the football club donated ?1,690,

meaning the total reached ?10,000.

Cardiff spokesman Barrie McAuliffe told the BBC: “The club are

honoured to add to the total raised thanks to two very generous

individuals indeed.

“Craig Bellamy, as pledged, is matching the funds raised on

Tuesday night as a personal commitment to his local links.

“Cardiff City principal investor Tan Sri Vincent Tan has also

confirmed his wish to see the total funds raised that night reach

?10,000 on behalf of the club, recognising our place and

responsibilities within the wider community.”
