Two local football clubs played a friendly match to raise money for Watford General Hospital to say thank you to the NHS working hard to keep the local community safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

The match, between Harvesters U16 South and Borehamwood Youth raised more than £200 following the postponement of a game that was cancelled in the first lockdown.

Sarah Rowland, Fixtures Secretary of the Harvester’s Football Club told Raise: “The teams were due to play in a cup final last season when we went into the first lockdown, so when the restrictions were eased they decided to play a friendly game before the start of this season in August to raise money for the NHS.

The game was a gesture of “thanks for all the great work you do and West Herts is our local hospital trust,” Sarah added.

Raise will ensure the sum will go to where it’s needed most and we’re extremely grateful to the clubs who played in honour of the NHS. Thank you!
