Hundreds of pounds were raised for good causes at a recent football match organised by Colchester Town Ladies FC at Wivenhoe Town FC benefitting the 'Cancer with Children' charity and the private care of young Under-14s player Paige Watts, who has recently been diagnosed with Leukaemia.
Paige, rated as a great prospect for the future, requires the devoted care of her family so her club arranged the friendly against Colchester United Ladies to offer their support, with a raffle helping to boost the total. Prizes included sporting memorabilia and organiser Mark Cutter thanked everyone who donated the items of football interest.
The match was a great success and thanks were due to everyone who got involved, especially Cutter and Jo Sibley, without whose energies and endeavours the organising team could not have rallied round. Traffic was marshalled traffic and buckets were also shaken in an example of how a club can work collectively and for a greater good. An early assessment suggested nearly £700 was collected on the gate and almost £400 on the raffle.
The Essex County FA also contributed and the Colchester United Community Sports Trust, through Kevin Anderson and his coaches and teams who turned out to play, pay and watch, were also an enormous help. Half the monies raised will go to Children With Cancer UK (formerly Children With Leukaemia) and the rest to help Paige and her family. There is still a website appeal open for Paige at www.justgiving.com/Paige-Watts.
