On the ball for charity goals at Aggborough
MONEY raised at a celebrity football match in Kidderminster has been handed over to charities including Cords4Life, set up in memory of tragic tot Charlie Harris-Beard.
Fraser Harban, an anaesthetist at the hospital who organised the Aggborough fun day in May, presented £1,000 each to representatives from Cord4Life, Balls to Cancer and Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s £4 million cancer centre appeal before last Saturday’s game between Kidderminster Harriers and Gateshead.
The cash was collected at the charity match between Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Jody Craddock’s team and Harriers manager Steve Burr’s all-stars.
Actors from Hollyoaks and EastEnders joined former Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion and Wolves players.
Mr Harban said: “It was a fantastic sum of money raised and will make a big difference. A big thank you to everyone who supported the day – the money is extremely well appreciated by everyone but, most importantly, the children themselves and their families.”
The cancer centre appeal has already hit the £2 million mark.
