A Brechin family is set to continue fund-raising for the Sick Kids Friends Foundation after a major success at a charity event held at Glebe Park.

Hannah Church (13), who has scoliosis, and her family have raised thousands of pounds for the charity, and added over £4,000 to their total following the event on May 4.

The event saw a charity football match take place on the Glebe Park pitch, while Hannah and her friends collected money in their charity buckets. The day also included a bouncy castle, sponge throwing, beat the goalie and a fund-raising waxing session

The event was also attended by Dundee United footballers John Souttar, Ryan Gauld and Mark McCallum.

Hannah’s Dad, Andy said: “I would like to thank the Dundee United boys for coming along and Brechin City for their help on the day. I would also like to thank Brechin Vics for loaning us strips for the match, and the Brechin City stewards Alan and Bill, who took no fee for their day’s work.

“Thanks also have to go to the Red Cross, Joyce and Allan at the Stables for providing the refreshments, Jack Gentles, Brechin Rugby Club, William Richards for taking photographs on the day and Malcolm from Radio North Angus, who was brilliant.”

Thanks also went to the officials who refereed the match. Andy explained: “They didn’t take a fee for their time, instead telling us to put it towards the charity.”

Andy added: “I would also like to thank Gary Ross for his help in organising, and to everyone who helped in the build up and on the day, and to all who donated.”
