A Non League club in Buckinghamshire are hosting their second charity-focused match in the same month to help those battling a rare condition.

Beaconsfield Town, who raised £1,500 for the mental health charity, Mind, at the start of the month, are encouraging fans to donate to the Action Duchenne foundation, which helps children who are battling with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Muscular Dystrophy is a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass, in the Rams’ home league match this Saturday [March 26], against Wimborne, they are dedicating it to Dougie Young, who is fighting the illness.

Dougie was diagnosed with the condition in July 2020 at the age of six, and at this present time, there is no cue.

His mother, Victoria, who is now the community fundraising officer for Action Duchenne, said: “His sheer determination and attitude will help him greatly.

“It is not hard to see what a joyful and determined young man he is, and despite his physical challenges he is a great swimmer and cyclist - swimming on his own at two years old and riding on two wheels from the age of four.

“He’s also a great writer, illustrator, and car fanatic.

“As a family, we experienced a lack of emotional support at what was a very dark time.

“It is every parent’s worst nightmare come true.

“We really couldn’t believe our beautiful boy had a condition that would foreshorten his life.

“I searched for support on the internet, and I found Action Duchenne.

“They are a truly amazing charity and Duchenne families like ours really need them.

"I am now privileged to be part of their team and help them to make sure lives are no longer limited by Duchenne muscular dystrophy.”

The match will kick-off at 3pm and more information can be found in the club’s matchday programme, along with www.actionduchenne.org.
