A Ffootball match in aid of Charlie’s Charity raised more than £250 for the cause.
Collingbourne FC and Marlborough Town Casuals stepped out onto the pitch at Collingbourne Ducis Recreation Ground last Thursday to play in the annual Charlie Lamb Memorial Match.
Charlie Lamb, from West Grafton, near Pewsey, died aged 18 in 2009 when the car he was driving crashed on the A4 near Hungerford. He played football for both Devizes and Pewsey.
Before the game there was a minute’s silence in his memory.
Organiser Carol Harman said: “We’ve held the match annually each year since Charlie’s death but it was bigger this year.”
During the second half Charlie’s younger brother, Jamie, made a guest appearance wearing the Collingbourne strip.
Marlborough Town Casuals won the game 3-1 and were presented with a trophy at the end of the match by Charlie’s mum, Jane.
