Match-worn Harrogate Town shirt helps raise £10,000 for girl with brain tumour A match-worn Harrogate Town shirt has helped raise almost £10,000 at auction to support a 6-year-old girl who has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Harrogate Town forward Jack Muldoon signed and donated his shirt following a charity football match held on Sunday (25th February). The match was held to raise funds for Evie Maw, a girl from Scunthorpe who is suffering with a brain tumour. And the auctioned shirt has helped the fundraising total reach more than £9,700 to support Evie and her family. Evie’s story Evie began suffering with headaches and sickness 18 months ago but her symptoms were dismissed by doctors and A&E staff. The symptoms worsened and in November 2023, Evie was unable to move her head and was struggling to stand or walk. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour and is now being supported by Sheffield Children’s Hospital. The GoFundMe page has been launched by Leah Westwood, a friend of Evie’s parents Clare and Karl. She said:

“We wanted to make this page to support Clare and Karl any way we can. Hopefully we can raise enough to support them and donate to Sheffield Children’s Hospital for everything they are doing for Evie. “I couldn’t even begin to imagine what they are feeling right now.”
