Wigton gala raises more than £3,000
Teams of all ages took part in a major fundraiser at Wigton football club in their annual gala event. Over 20 teams of all ages - from under 7s to under 13s, boys and girls - were present for the two-day event over the weekend of the 25th and 26th June.
With the help of volunteer parents manning stalls across the two days, the club was able to raise more than £3,000 to go towards operating costs.
We sponsored three teams in the under 8s competition and they played teams from Beckwithshaw, Colton, Killinghall, Ripon and Wetherby.
It was Wigton U8s who did best and won eight of their 12 games in the tournament. As a non-competitive format, all teams and players received medals at the end.
