A FOOTBALL game between Portchester Community School teachers and AFC Portchester XI raised £620 for Daniel Findlay, who has cerebral palsy.

The proceeds of the match at the AFC Portchester grounds in November will go towards the £50,000 needed to pay for a life-changing operation in America this summer.

Daniel, 13, a Portchester Community pupil, has spastic diplegia – a form of cerebral palsy that mainly affects his legs and has left him in a wheelchair.

Assistant head Steve Harvey said: ‘The game was well-attended and we’re delighted to be able to support Daniel and his family.

‘We owe AFC Portchester a special thanks for not only offering their facilities, but also laying on a raffle and entertainment at their new clubhouse.’
