A FOOTBALL club is urging the community to attend a swab event to help eight-year-old Lily May Filmer who has leukaemia and needs a blood stem cell transplant.

Anyone between the ages of 18-55 and in general good health can register and give a simple swab sample to see if they are a match for Lily.

The swab drive will take place on March 1 from 10am until 4pm at Pershore Town Football Club.

There will be a raffle, face painting, and entertainment from Princess Elsa from Frozen.

The club has raised over £3000 for DKMS so far.
