Coventry City to pay tribute to brave city youngster Hallie

Coventry Editorial 28th Nov, 2023   0

COVENTRY City will be paying tribute to brave city youngster Hallie Reeve after her tragic passing aged two on November 19.

The Sky Blues will hold a minute of applause in the 17th minute of tonight’s game against Plymouth Argyle, while her photo will be shown on the scoreboard at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Hallie’s family are all lifelong Sky Blues fans.

The two-year-old sadly lost her battle with Juvenile myelomonocytic leukaemia (JMML) over the weekend.

The club paid tribute to Hallie after the news of her passing broke last Monday, with a statement saying everyone at Coventry City was devastated and extending their condolences to the two-year-olds loved ones.

In July, a crowdfunding campaign was launched to raise £1million to fund a potentially life-saving trip to America for the two-year-old to undergo a CAR T-cell therapy trial.




The #rallyforhallie campaign raised over £870,000 in just four months.

Cash raised will go to causes close to her family, while the GoFundMe page will remain open until the end of the year with any new donations supporting the couple with the loss of Hallie.
