Geoff Thomas Returns To Selhurst On Sunday

29 December 2018

1991: Geoff Thomas

Former Eagles skipper Geoff Thomas will be back at Selhurst Park on Sunday for the match against Chelsea as the club's special guest.

Cure Leukaemia is the day’s chosen charity and there are a couple of ways in which you contribute to the fund raising with a simple donation. 

Geoff was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia (CML) in 2003 soon after he finished his professional football career and was given just three months to live. Thanks to Cure Leukaemia co-founder Professor Charlie Craddock CBE, a bone marrow transplant from his sister and the phenomenal clinical team Cure Leukaemia supports at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, he was able to win his battle with this disease in 2005.

He has dedicated his life ever since to raising funds to fight blood cancer and at Sunday’s game Palace fans will be able to lend their support to the tremendous efforts which Geoff has worked tirelessly at over the years.

There will be collectors around the stadium for fans to make donations and there is a Text To Donate code which you can make your pledge using the text code.  

Text CPFC10 £5 to 70070 to donate to Cure Leukaemia and play your part.  

 (The amount you donate can of course be amended)

Geoff will be introduced to the crowd prior to the match against Chelsea on Sunday at around 11.50pm.
