Michael Sheen admitted that he was going to have to return to acting after stumping up some of the cash for Cardiff to host the Homeless World Cup from his own pocket.
But he has dug deep again to support the Welsh women’s team’s goalkeeper Jennifer Gattrell in her bid to gain sponsorship for her new club side Newport City.
The side formed in the summer and played their first game in the South Wales Women’s & Girls’ League Division One last week.

Ahead of their debut, Gattrell set up an online fundraiser to raise £1,500 to help the team cover their costs and pay for their kit as they continued their search for sponsors.
The 34-year-old told The Big Issue she was stunned when she received notification that Sheen had donated £200 while out playing bingo.
