On Saturday 16th March we went to Tiverton Town Football Club to fundraise for new sports equipment for young people to use at Tiverton youth centre.
It was a very wet and windy afternoon but this did not deter any of our young volunteers – Chelsea Cooper, Callum White, Sophie Rowe and Isabelle Ellicott from turning out.
Together with staff from Tiverton youth centre (and armed with collection buckets and Space T-shirts) we attended the Tiverton Town Football Club End to End match against Salisbury on Saturday afternoon. The match resulted in a brilliant win for Tiverton! A very proud moment for us all was when Ben Mammola was awarded Man of the Match!
Until recently, Ben has been a youth worker at the centre!
In total our collection was £169.17, a fabulous amount, which is going towards the purchase of new Sports equipment for the Centre. A huge thank you to our volunteers and to Tiverton Town Football Club and their supporters and the Salisbury Town supporters who also contributed!
