The committee of Rastrick Juniors Football Club has received a massive boost thanks to a donation of £1,000 from supporter Jeremy Meadowcroft.

Jeremy, a commercial bank manager for Lloyds Bank in West Yorkshire for over 27 years, is passionate about Rastrick Juniors FC and raised the funds through his employer’s scheme that matches fund-raising pound for pound, and he also logs his volunteer hours to this charity. In return, Lloyds Bank makes a donation to the group for his time and double it.

“This community and junior football club provides a healthy outdoor pursuit for children of all ages week in-week out all year round and receives no central funding from any sporting body at all,” he said. “So I know they appreciate all fundraising that is done.”
