In time for the World Cup, our North region donated £100 of sports vouchers to help a North Yorkshire club raise vital funds.
Thorpe Willoughby Sports Association recently held its Thorpe United FC Football Gala Day which included a tombola and lots of activities. Several thousand pounds were expected to have been collected.
Under-6 coach and gala day co-ordinator Mike Rodger said: “Our huge thanks to Linden Homes for their support of the event and our football club. All proceeds raised from the gala day will be ploughed back into the club and our facilities.”

Linden Homes North sales manager Julie Hubbard said: “As a company building in a number of village locations, we are always looking for worthy and valued community causes we can support.
