Colby and his dad receive a signed Paul Pogba shirt from United Legend Dennis Irwin

Manchester United Experience

We were recently contacted by a family who introduced us to an 8 year old boy and his father that we could not wait to help. At 8 years old Colby had already watched his sister battle and thankfully beat cancer, and now had found out that his father had stage 3 bowel cancer. His mother Dawn shared with us how tough it had been and how confusing a time it was for Colby.

World Record Attempt Update – A Match Report With a Difference

After 4 weeks the dust has now settled on our World Record Attempt for the Longest Marathon playing 11-a-side football, so we are long overdue a match report. As you are probably aware, the attempt was a huge success with us successfully completing 7 days – 169 hours of continuous football! We are currently in the middle of collating the video footage together with the witness log books in preparation to send to Guinness World Records for the attempt to be officially verified, but whatever the outcome, we completed what we set out to achieve – playing football for 169 hours breaking the existing record.


The Farrell’s Trip to London

At the beginning of the year, we became aware of a gentleman
from Neath who was suffering from Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The family were very modest in their application, not
wanting to ask too much of KOAC, enquiring if we could send them, with there
three children to London to see the musical Matilda and, if it wasn’t too much
trouble to maybe book on their behalf one of either the London Eye, Aquarium or
Madame Tussauds

Christmas Auction – A Thank You

Christmas seems like it is far behind us, but we at KOAC would like to give a massive thank you everyone who was involved in our online Christmas Auction.


A Christmas Treat for Caroline

It was back in November that KOAC learned of Caroline’s condition through a mutual friend of some of the trustees. This seemed particularly cruel given that the festive season was just around the corner. So we decided to organise a Christmas treat for Caroline!
