Shortlisted for award

MANSFIELD fundraiser Phill Walker has been shortlisted for the Lymphoma Association Beacons of Hope Award 2011.

Phill is the father of ex-Mansfield Town youth player Jamie Walker, who is in remission from cancer, and has raised more than £85,000 for research into the condition and other charities.

“I’m honoured to be nominated and would like to thank everyone for their support,” he said.
