The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Coun Mike Gibbons

The 30th commemoration of the Bradford City Fire is a major milestone in the history of this city.

It is heartwarming to know that it is so much a part of the consciousness of people nationally too and it will be really appreciated by all the fans and the families affected to hear that the FA, the Football League and the Premier League will be supporting the commemoration.

We ask that people join us in our memorial activities and hope that the fundraising goes well for the Bradford University Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit, a cause very much taken to heart by Bradford people.
