Rovers’ midfielder Matty Blair has asked for help in raising money for Myton Hospice who are caring for his terminally ill brother, Ross.
Ross has been treated at the hospice for some time now and Matty is keen for them to have more funds at their disposal to look after others in a similar position.
Rovers face the team Ross supports, Sheffield Wednesday, in a pre-season friendly at the Keepmoat Stadium on Wednesday evening where there will be bucket collections by fans all around the ground in order to try and raise as much money as possible.
The collection has been organised by Rovers fans Anna, Liz, Elliott and Katie.
Matty Blair said: “With my brother being terminally ill and the hospice treating him, it means a lot to me to try and give something back.
“The guys who are organising the collections deserve massive credit as well, they have been a great help and I am very grateful.”
