A charity has thanked Kings Langley Football Club (KLFC) for raising several hundred pounds during one of their matches.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust (CFT) wrote to the club last month after they raised £431 during their 4-0 win over Wimborne Town at The Orbital Fasteners Stadium. The club did this alongside Bob Best, whose daughter, Abbie Best, suffers from the illness.
Rachel Taylor, CFT community fundraiser, said: “Thank you so much for holding a fundraiser at your match in support of the CFT.
“I’d like to make a special mention of Bob Best, who organised the fundraiser and kept the day going with some fantastic DJ-ing! Congratulations to KLFC for their fantastic 4-0 win over Wimborne Town and we wish you all the best for the rest of the season.
“Your support ensures that we can continue to fight for over 10,800 people, like Abbie, living with cystic fibrosis across the UK. These are some of the ways your support is helping:
“Research: Donations like yours help fund work like our Strategic Research Centre on gene editing. Genetic therapies have the potential to treat the underlying cause of CF for everyone with the condition.
“Support: We have made over 700 COVID-related grants to protect the health of people with CF over the last year. Your donation ensures that we can continue to provide such vital support and advice.”
