Sleaford Academicals Walking Football Club have helped raise £600 for a fellow club.

They held a sponsored walk in aid of The Sleaford Laffletics, a tremendous club that promotes health, fun and fitness for disabled people in and around the town.

Chairman Steve Morris commented: “We often watched the Laffletics club, who share Carres Fitness facilities with us on a Saturday, and we all thought it would be great to get involved.

“I am proud, as chairman of the Accies, to say we raised £500. Thanks to Kerry Bampton and ASDA that (total) will be raised to £600.

“I couldn’t be prouder as this is the fifth fundraising project we have done in our first year.”
