Fun Football at Sherborne Town Youth FC
Sherborne Town Youth FC (STYFC) have been working in partnership with HippBones (Gillingham) to provide fun football sessions for local young people with disabilities from ages 12 to 25.
The sessions have been running for many months and players can be seen growing in experience, confidence and skills, with most of the session time being spent playing matches in a fun and friendly environment.
John Taylor, STYFC Chairperson, said: "We are hugely grateful to HippBones for welcoming us into their club and we were delighted to be able to present them with a cheque for £1,444.
"This money was raised by STYFC at a recent Race Night - it received outstanding support from our event sponsors and the local community. We do hope that this small donation will help HippBones to continue to provide such a fantastic service to local families and young people. Special recognition must go to Glenn and Janet Hannam, Mark Woolmington and Dave Carey for making the Race Night such a success, they are great ambassadors for our club.
"We have had outstanding support from Sherborne Town Council, Sherborne Town FC and Dorset FA; they have all supported us to turn these sessions into a sustainable reality. We are enormously grateful for their support and advice."
