A football tournament has helped a fundraising drive for a disabled child.
Wallsend Town FC hosted the event to raise money for eight-year-old Emma Jobes, who suffers from cerebral palsy, and whose family are aiming to raise £2,000 for a vital support chair.
A total of 16 teams took part in the event at NCL Park in Howdon, which raised £350 – which was double to £700 by Wallsend FC sponsor Newcastle Clinic.
Emma’s grandmother Issy Jobes, 46, said: “My husband Mickey knows Wallsend FC’s manager Dave Grandini.
“Dave came to hear of Emma and her need for a new chair and suggested helping with the tournament. We are absolutely delighted.”
Dave said: “I hope the proceeds from the game and Newcastle Clinic will inspire others to help contribute to Emma’s Fund as there is still some way to go.”
