The County Air Ambulance Trust has received a cheque for £890.00 from Bloxwich Bullets Football Club, after playing a charity memorial football match in memory of Kane Small.
Kane was only six years old when he was involved in a mini motorcycle accident in a rural area where only an air ambulance was able to reach him and transfer to hospital. Unfortunately, Kane later died from his injuries.
Kane used to play soccer for the Bloxwich Bullets Football Club that has continued to support the County Air Ambulance Trust through fundraising events in his memory.
Stephen Clifft who helped to organise the match said: “We are so grateful to the friends and relatives who came together along with Kane’s old football team to play in his honour. It was an enjoyable but emotional day, particularly when Kane would have been 18 on the day the match was played. But we are so glad that we could raise this money for the County Air Ambulance Trust.”
Lesley Knight, HELP Appeal ambassador said: “We are hugely grateful to the Bloxwich Bullets for their generous donation, which will go towards the County Air Ambulance Trust’s ‘Golden Hour’ Appeal, which supports Air Ambulance operational services and infrastructure projects across the Midlands and Avon region; and the HELP Appeal, which funds lifesaving helipads so helicopters can land at hospitals throughout the country – saving time and therefore saving lives. Thank you Bloxwich Bullets for your generous support.”
