Classrooms for Malawi had plenty to cheer after being chosen to be the Motherwell FC charity of the day for the recent game against Celtic.

Donations made by hospitality guests raised £460 which will go towards building and refurbishing classrooms in the African country.

Classrooms for Malawi chairman James Kelly said: “I’d like to extend my thanks to the generous fans at the game and everyone at Motherwell FC for helping organise this event and choosing us as their charity of the day.

“It underlines what a fantastic community club Motherwell are and we certainly look forward to working with them and their supporters in the future.

“Being based in Motherwell we have enjoyed considerable support from the local community, especially from a number of schools and churches in the area.

“We are an entirely voluntary organisation, with no paid staff, so all donations go towards improving educational facilities in Malawi.

“Education is often the best and only way for young people to get out of poverty and thanks to the generosity of the public we have managed to give hope to so many children in need.“
