Bradford’s Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU) received a cheque of over £4,000 on Saturday.

The money was raised via a bucket collection at City’s annual memorial fixture, which marked the 34th anniversary of the Valley Parade Fire Disaster.

And the fund received a further boost after proceeds of a book, One Year Two Seasons, written by Bantams supporter Richard Wardell, were donated to provide a final total of £4,107.

Funds raised will go support pioneering research and development, supporting patients and their families.

Ajay Mahajan, a Consultant Plastic Surgeon and the director of research at PSBRU, said: “Years pass by but we continue to remember all who were affected by the tragedy that struck Bradford City more than 34 years ago.

“The last home game every season is very special in this context. The Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU) has always been generously supported by the Bantams and this year has been no different.

“I am very grateful to the club and its fanbase for their very kind gesture both at the bucket collection at the last home game as well as at the memorial service on May 11.

“These funds are vital to keep our work going at our research unit at the University of Bradford.

“We have been able to do some pioneering work that has been presented at various national and international meetings and has helped us build bonds with other research units across Europe.

“We look forward to continuing with our work and with the Bantams' continuing support. I am pleased to say the club can be proud of the fact Bradford's Burns Unit is held in very high regard internationally.”
