Three high school students volunteered to help out at Bamber Bridge Football Club during the club’s recent match against Radcliffe, and raised money for charity at the same time.

Madyson Kehoe and Katie Crossley, from Lostock Hall Academy, and Morgan Brown from Balshaw’s CE High School, in Leyland, collected £150 for the Heartbeat charity.

John Gibson, volunteer sports events fund-raiser for the charity, who is also a member of the football club committee, said: “As somebody who served in the forces for over 30 years, I believe it’s important that children gain experience as volunteers.

“Not only does it help to develop and improve their life skills, it’s also good for their CVs before leaving school.”

He added: “The girls’ enthusiasm, attitude and verbal skills were excellent in dealing with the many people who attended the match.

“Their dedication and commitment as volunteers was a shinning example of what our youngsters do nowadays.”
