Rayo Vallecano announce cash raised for 85yo Carmen

Rayo Vallecano has revealed they've raised €21,000 for 85-year-old Vallecas resident Carmen.

Carmen was evicted from her home last month in a strong-arm action by local authorities which created controversy across Spain.

AS reports Rayo created a new row of seats at the Estadio de Vallecas - "Row Zero" with five euros from every ticket sold going to their campaign to help Carmen. Players and coaching staff also made personal contributions from their own pockets. In less than five days from the launch of Row Zero, more than 2,000 euros had been raised.

Rayo detailed how 15,025 euros had been collected from the 3,005 tickets sold for the league meeting with Sevilla and thanked another 159 individuals and businesses who had also helped the cause.
