KIDS from all over Lanarkshire recently took part in a football festival to raise money for Yorkhill Children’s Hospital.

Mossend FC 2001s hosted the festival at the Sir Matt Busby Centre in Bellshill attracting over 120 children from the surrounding area.

Initially the youngsters were planning to raise £500 but they smashed that target collecting a total of £771 for the charity - and that is without the donations that are still coming in.

Billy McQueen of Mossend FC wants to thank everyone who supported the event especially sponsors David Wilson Homes. For more pictures, see this week’s Times & Speaker, dated Thursday, September 1.
