PLAYERS and coaches from Mossend FC 2002s have launched a fundraising campaign to enable them to take part in a tournament later this year.
The boys are playing in the annual Craig Tara tournament in Ayrshire from April 12 to 15 and have a fundraising target of £4,000.
They netted £1,525 at a sponsored bag packing Morrisons in Bellshill, arranged by store deputy manager Angela Marshall and grocery manager Bert Clemenson.
In return, Angela and Bert were presented with ‘thank you’ gifts from the boys when they attended a training session.
The team’s fundraising will continue with a Rhianna tribute night, featuring local singer Lisa McKechnie, at The Orb on Saturday, February 9.
Anyone wishing tickets, or who would like to help out by sponsoring or donating raffle prizes, should contact Barbara McGuire on 07561 543212.
