Grand re­sult at big char­ity footie game

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

A char­ity foot­ball match helped raise more than £1000 as play­ers looked to kick out can­cer.

A La­nark­shire Can­cer Care Trust side took on North Mother­well AFC and raised £1050 for the Wishaw char­ity.

La­nark­shire Can­cer Care Trust pro­vide a vol­un­teer driver ser­vice across North La­nark­shire help­ing pa­tients at­tend ap­point­ments or treat­ment on time.

With LCCT need­ing to raise £250,000 ev­ery year to run the ser­vice a lot of fundrais­ing must be or­gan­ised.

The match fin­ished with a 7-2 vic­tory for North Mother­well AFC.

But the char­ity came out the real win­ner.

A spokesper­son from LCCT said:“We have to raise £250,000 but 85 per cent of that must be raised through do­na­tions and events.

“We’re lucky to have pa­tients and their fam­i­lies ar­range events to help us fundraise be­cause it keeps us go­ing.”
