March Town Ladies have been doing their bit to support charity and will raise more than £5,000 by the end of the season.

The ladies have already supported two charities with seven players completing a gruelling sponsored walk up British peaks including Ben Nevis.

Kayleigh Churchyard (who suffers from Crohn’s) and team mates completed the task and raised £2,706 for Crohns and Colitis UK. Forward Naomi McGarvie also participated in a sponsored boxing match and raised £700 for Cancer Research.

Next year, defender Sydney Davis is completing the Brighton Marathon and hoping to raise £2,000 for the Samaritans.

Hares coach Rich Lorraine said: “The club are extremely proud of all the players who give up their time to help others.

“Unfortunately, training for the events sometimes impacts on availability for training and games but how can you complain when it’s raising money for such good causes.

“We hope that younger players see the Hares as role models and show what can be achieved on and off the pitch.”

The Hares had their final game of 2019 called off at Histon due to a waterlogged pitch, but are looking forward to an exciting January 2020 with games against the top two teams in the league, plus a cup game versus National League Cambs City.
