Packing shopping bags nets cash for Newhaven Girls FC

FOOTBALLERS from Newhaven Girls FC raised more than £1,200 by spending ten hours packing shopping bags at Sainsbury’s on July 9 and July 10.

The much needed money will be used to pay for new football kits and training equipment.

Club chairman Richard Higglesden said the fundraiser was very successful.

He thanked Sainsbury’s in Newhaven and all the people who donated their hard earned cash.

Newhaven Girls FC currently has girls in the U11-13-14 leagues and wants to cover younger ages next year.

The group runs training for U10 girls.

Training takes place on Tuesdays at Newhaven Town FC in Fort Road.
