A team of kind-hearted fundraisers completed an epic charity challenge on Saturday in support of Rovers fan James Williams, who is currently battling cancer.

Over 20 of his closest family and friends hiked up and down Snowdon twice in one day – all in full Rovers kit – to raise money for James' chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

The courageous group, known as JBO's Rovers, have exceeded their online target of £2,500 and are expected to raise significantly more money through sponsorship forms.

James, 36, who is a life-long Rovers fan from Holyhead in North Wales, was a special guest of the club for the visit of Stoke City in April, when he met Elliott Bennett ahead of kick-off, and once played at Ewood Park in a Football Aid fixture.
