WINSCOMBE Football Club’s first team lined up against a charity XI to raise money for a new dialysis unit at Weston General Hospital.
Husband and wife Andrew and Amy Snow organised the event after Andrew spent three years on dialysis as he suffered from kidney failure, before having an organ transplant.
So far the couple have raised more than £250 towards a new unit at the hospital, which helped Andrew during his treatment.
Winscombe beat Andrew’s team 8-1 at the village recreation ground, but the 27-year-old, of Woolvers Way, Locking, said: “We want to thank the football club and everyone for taking part.
“We’re hoping to raise anywhere between £5,000 and £10,000 and we are planning a number of other events later in the year to help raise that money.”
