Angels kick-off for cancer charity
A football match between mums and daughters saw the youngsters triumph in the 9-2 thriller.
Ashford Angels FC, t he town’s women’s and girls’ side, who t r ai n at Godington Primary School, organised the charity contest in memory of Caron Branson.
The mum of three teenage girls, who are Ashford Angels players, died two-and-a-half years ago, but was the inspiration for the match at the school, which raised £220 for Cancer Research.
Teenagers Amy, Emma and Hayley asked for the money raised to go to Cancer Research and in the previous mothers and daughters’ clash, they requested funds went to Pilgrims Hospice where their mum was cared for.
Angels’ founder Lee Sage said: “The Angels showed the mums a thing or two and pulled out the win with a 9-2 victory. It was a valiant effort by the mums and a great sporting display by their daughters, who take the shield for another year.”
