Sutton Guardian's Little league campaign gets boost from Yorkshire Bank
Another big benefactor has thrown its weight behind our Little League Lifeline campaign.
The Sutton Guardian is hoping to raise £3,000 for Sutton Little League so it can buy its own burger van, the profits from which will keep the league afloat for the foreseeable future.
Without the money from the cafe, the league could fold, and hundreds of children would not get the chance to play football every weekend.
The league began in earnest last weekend, and as the opening games kicked off, Yorkshire Bank announced it was willing to donate £250 towards the cause.
Susan Suggitt, manager of the Yorkshire’s Sutton branch, said: "When we heard the Little League was trying to raise funds for a refreshments van we wanted to help,”
"As a Society we’re committed to supporting local good causes in our community so I'm delighted we've been able to help and I hope the money will be a real boost to the league’s fundraising efforts."
The donation was made from the Society’s Community Investment Fund – set up to help local good causes that can often be overlooked for charitable support.
So far, the Little League Lifeline campaign has been backed by the FA and has raised £500 of the target of £3,000 thanks to donations from Yorkshire Bank and Southern Rail, so we still need your help.
If you want to donate, you can either send a cheque made payable to Sutton Little League and address it to Wayne Francis, 65 Bramblewood Close, Carshalton, Surrey, SM5 1PQ.
Or alternatively you can transfer money straight into the little league account which is with Natwest, Account number 37619225, Sort code 602108.
