Lighting and Friends meet former Town aces at Charity event

Sunday was a fun day in the name of charity helping raise money at The Match for Heroes being held at Ossett Albion FC.

Match For Heroes football match in memory of Sgt Gareth Thursby and Private Thomas Wroe who were killed in Afghanistan, and took place on Sunday 29th April at Ossett Albion, Wakefield. The money raised will be split between the Yorkshire Regiment Benevolent Fund and the Army Benevolent Fund, as well as funding a bench at the National Arboretum for both soldiers. As we post this they're still counting but organiser Jamie Sykes said at this point it is over £10,000 - a fantastic effort by all concerned!
