Goal for Rudham Ward thanks to junior football club’s donation

A junior football club has donated more than £300 worth of toys to help young patients at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

King’s Lynn Junior Football Club wanted to give something back to the community by buying a haul of toys for Rudham Ward.

Carl Carter and Andy Stewart have been running the team for seven years but have now called it a day after much success.

Mr Carter said: “Mr Carter said: “As a team we have achieved a lot over the years. We have won more than 25 tournaments, we have been in the country’s top 10 for three years running and won many divisional 1 leagues and league cups across Norfolk and Cambridgeshire making the boys the most successful youth club for miles.

“Now we have come to an end of our fantastic journey we wanted the remaining club funds, £340, to go to help other youngsters in the area and Rudham Ward is a really good cause.”

Play specialist at Rudham ward Kelly Hodgson has thanked the football club for its support.

She said: “Donations such as this make all the difference to our patients. We would not be able to offer the opportunities that we do without support from clubs like King’s Lynn Junior Football Club.”
