Bumper £6,400 raised from memorial match for Ollie and Oggy

Ross Crawford 28th Aug, 2021

A GRAND total of £6,400 has been raised from the Ollie and Oggy memorial football match last Sunday.

Nearly 60 players took part in the game and more than 500 supporters turned out to cheer them on and to raise vital cash for the two nominated charities, Brake, in memory of Ollie Sellers, and the Salvation Army in memory of Chris ‘Oggy’ Langham.

Not only that but fans were able to snap up tickets for some fantastic raffle prizes including a Wembley tour, England football tickets, 4-ball golf days, a balloon ride, helicopter flight and two £100 vouchers for Gymshark.

Money poured into a Go Fund Me page and with the sales on the day the amount raised has soared.
