The manager of March branch of the Nottingham Building Society has thanked kind-hearted locals for helping to raise money to replace goals stolen from March Rangers U12s girls team.
David Boyce, branch manager of The Nottingham, said: “Along with March Rangers we want to say thank you to the local community for their support over the pound for pound matched fundraising from the community for the team.
“It’s overwhelming to see the commitment from local people to help us replace the stolen goals for the girls. The team have had a great season so far and the benefits stretch far beyond sport.”
Team coach Steven Wilson went along to the branch to collect a cheque for £100 which was raised with the help of a lucky local resident who had won a signed Nottingham Forest football that was donated by the branch to help support the fundraising effort.
The team train on Friday evenings between 6pm and 7pm and also play on Saturday mornings. All new players are welcome to join, particularly those from years six and seven.
