Fancy Dress was a huge success (Comet April 12).
Can I say a huge thank you to everyone involved in the above charity football match on April 1 in Stevenage and featured in your newspaper.
This event was held in memory of my son, Lee Haynes who died on May 31, 2005 from renal failure at the age of 25. I have set up a charity in Lee's memory at the Lister Hospital and all money raised will go towards a renal research unit dedicated to improving the quality of dialysis treatments.
When the unit is opened, it will be named "The Lee Haynes Renal Research Institute", this must be the most amazing tribute anyone could have. It makes me so proud to have a son so highly thought of, his name will go on and on.
My special thanks to Sue and Bob at the Arena Tavern, Mick and Terry Cox for their teams, Mush and Craig for their organisation, Brian and the other referees for seeing fair play and to everyone who played for making the event possible. You really are a special lot!
On the day, an amazing £5,500 was raised for the fund. My thanks to the Follett Trust for their donation and to all local people and businesses which donated prizes for the raffle and auction and to everyone who gave so generously, all of you made the day a huge success.
