Police v Fire football match for charity

North Wales Wrexham Town Police Station FC took on the North Wales Fire Service in support of a children’s hospice.

A friendly fundraising match has been organised at Bellevue Park in Wrexham on Sunday as police officers and firefighters compete to raise money for charity.

All funds will be donated to the Hope House & Ty Gobaith charity which works to help children with life-threatening conditions enjoy the best quality of life.

The organisation also provides specialist care and bereavement support.

Sgt Dave Smith has arranged the fixture which will kick off at 10am.

He said: “Supporting the work of a truly brilliant organisation like Hope House is something myself and everyone involved are delighted to be involved in.

“There has always been a friendly rivalry between police and fire officers, and there’s always a competitive element when we play each other - whatever the sport.

“This fixture felt like an opportunity to do something positive together for a really deserving cause.

“The services offered by Hope House are vital to children who are seriously ill and their families too.

“As a parent myself, I can fully appreciate how valuable their facilities are to families in their time of need.

“We want to raise as much money as possible and I’d ask everyone to consider making a donation, no matter how small, to support this fantastic organisation.”

Donations can be made via their Just Giving link.
