Fans to support Jack Jeffreys at Shrewsbury play-off game

Charlton Athletic fans are joining together to support Jack Jeffreys at tomorrow’s crucial play-off game against Shrewsbury Town. 

Just days after celebrating his fourth birthday in August last year Jack was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer.

His family are selling the wristbands and lanyards at Thursday’s game to help fund his treatment that is not available on the NHS.

Addicks fans have been quick to support Jack and have helped raise crucial funds during collections at previous games and two shirts were also auctioned off at Monday’s Player of the Year dinner.

As well as the collections though, Charlton fans are looking to raise further awareness to Jack’s caused by singing “There is only one Jack Jeffreys” during the fourth minute of Thursday’s game.  

Addicks fan Louise Mattin, who has helped coordinate much of the fundraising, said: “We are trying to show the family we are behind them.”

Jack was visited in hospital by Karl Robinson and Johnnie Jackson last year and attended his first game at The Valley last month where he got to meet the rest of the team and have a kickabout on the pitch.
