The football season may have come to an end for Heroes Children Fund ambassador Scott Loach, but on Saturday May 25th at Carlton Town Football Club, Scott organised and ran his own football fun day.
Heroes Children Fund FC took on Scott Loach XI in a 90 minute match, that saw the Ipswich stoppers side run out 4-1 winners.The game was played in great spirits, underneath the Nottinghamshire sun.
The game saw ‘Loachy’ swap the gloves for a role in the number 9 shirt and he did not disappoint the strong 200+ crowd that turned up in force to support the cause. Getting his name on the scoresheet, Loach looped a header over the hapless charity chairman Lewis Scott to seal the fourth and final goal of the game.
An array of raffle prizes were on offer after the football and it is with special thanks to Jonny Upton, for his hard work and dedication in collating some spectacular prizes including: signed football shirts, boots, cricket bats and exclusive experiences.
The day helped raise a grand total of £1,500 and we are delighted to announce that the money will send 8 year old Cole to Disneyland Paris to celebrate his 9th birthday along with 2 year Ella, who both lost their fathers in Afghanistan in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
We would like to give massive thanks to Scott and Jonny for hosting such a well organised and attended event, that we hope will flourish and grow year in, year out.
