With the dust now settling on the weekend’s epic 24-Hour Charity Match at The Dunes Hotel Stadium we thought it was important to recognise the companies who backed the event.
The many sponsors across the board were hugely appreciated by everyone involved and helped raise an incredible £5,000 to be shared between St Mary’s Hospice and a fund to improve football facilities at Schneider Road.
