Global Logistics Football Club has teamed up with Nationwide Grimsby Branch to raise more than £4,500 for babies at Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital. The money was raised from a fundraiser football match and a marathon run.
The football match was held on 16th July and players from Global Logistics raised money by paying to take part and from sponsorship.
Money was also raised by Fay Fenwick from Nationwide Grimsby Branch; she ran the Paris Marathon and received sponsorship for her run.
After the football match everyone involved gathered at the Honest Lawyer on Ladysmith Road. They held a raffle for all the prizes that had been donated by local businesses and an auction for signed memorabilia, including signatures from the 1966 World Cup. A signed football and shirt, which was donated by Grimsby Town Football Club, was also auctioned.
Owner of Grimsby Cars Ltd, Mike Croft, made a significant donation towards the cause pledging to give 10% of all service invoices as a donation.
Manager for Global Logistics FC, Dean Atkinson, said: “A few of the football players have had babies on the Neonatal unit; it’s very close to our hearts.”
