Sponsored walk to Port Vale in memory of Saddlers' supporter...WE ARE sad to report the passing of one of the Walsall FC Family as Julie Skidmore recently lost her brave battle with illness.
During her days as a WPC, she was a popular and recognisable figure on matchdays at Fellows Park, but beyond that she was also a loyal supporter of the club who would follow The Saddlers both home and away with her family and friends.
There are a lot of people associated to the club who knew her and a group of supporters have decided to walk to our game at Port Vale on April 5th to raise funds for The Royal Marsden Hospital in Surrey where Julie spent time receiving clinical trials.
To get involved with the walk yourself or to sponsor those taking part, a Just Giving page has been set up, which can be found at www.justgiving.com/Helen-Baker10/Alternatively call Neil Adams on 07878 240770 or Helen Baker on 07540 848320.
Various other fund-raising events are being planned throughout the year in honour of this wonderful woman who gave such tremendous support to the club both in her professional and personal life.
The thoughts of everyone here at Walsall FC are with her family at this sad time and we encourage you all to support the walk to Vale Park.
