The Wisbech Town Acorns Football Club reserves team was presented with a new kit at their charity football match in aid of Will’s Wheels.
The match raised £275 for the Wimblington-based charity, which aims to raise £24,000 to buy Will Storey a life-changing wheelchair.
So far £15,000 has been raised for Will, who was born prematurely at 26 weeks weighing just 1lb 11.5oz, has cerebral palsy which confines him to a wheelchair.
At the fundraiser Howdens Joinery, which has opened a showroom in Wisbech, presented the team with their new kit.
The charity match game was played in extreme heat and finished 3-1 to the reserves. The goal scorers were Hristo Dragnev, Ahmed Aliosman and Andrew Fay.
Jamie Robinson, manager of Howdens Joinery Wisbech, attended to present the kit to the reserves captain Sam Bothamley.
The next fundraiser for Will’s Wheels is a family fun day at The Anchor Inn in Wimblington on Saturday July 28 from 12noon onwards.
