A FUNDRAISING event for The Kelly Ross Forever Fund took place when children’s football school, NMV Football, hosted an auction and raffle.

Nathan Moffatt’s football school players helped sell the raffle tickets and take part in the event, raising £1,950.

The Kelly Ross Forever Fund was set up through The Forever Friends Appeal in her memory after the Devizes hairdresser died in 2015.

The fund was established to support the Cancer Care Campaign at RUH, and has now raised £17,697.90.

Cross Manufacturing’s Craig Townsend is also hosting an event at Devizes football club on September 16, with kick off at 1.30pm. Many players haven’t kicked a ball for a few years but they have vowed to do their bit to raise money. They are hoping people who knew Kelly will come along to the game to cheer them on.

NMV Football School is now looking for older members up to 10 years old to start taking part in the sessions due to high demand as their sessions begin for the new season at Green Lane Playing Fields.

The children will be split into groups on arrival, with youngsters learning simple movement and skills whilst the older children will be learning more advance football games leading into competitive situations.

The second change is pricing as a child will cost £5 on entry of the session, and £3 per sibling. Alternatively, it is reduce to £4 online as a monthly charge.

Sessions are 45 mins long and run between 11am and 11.45am. They take place on Sunday.
