CATSHILL FC players have donated their flight deposits to Primrose Hospice after their international charity match was cancelled due to Covid-19.
The over 50s team were due to fly to Scotland to play against Keith Athletic however the match has been suspended until next May.
The team say they are looking forward to next year when they will reignite the friendly rivalry, billed among players as the ‘Scotland vs England’ clash.
Players donated £420 deposit money to the £130 they have already raised for the charity at previous events.
Team manager, Gary Macpherson, said: “It’s a great gesture to donate the deposit money to help the great work conducted by Primrose.
“Rest assured we’ll be making the trip up north in 2021 in an effort to beat the totals raised over the past two years.”
Primrose Hospice has continued to provide care and support to people with life-limited conditions and their families throughout the pandemic.
The charity’s Family Support team has also been dealing with an increase of people needing support for complex bereavements as a result of coronavirus.
