Members of a young football team have done their bit for the Wheel Appeal in memory of a King’s Lynn boy who died.
The Little Eds team are the top of the table in the Mid Norfolk Under-10 league and in a recent game they raised £100 for the Wheel Appeal.
They wore specially printed shirts for the game to mark the birthday of Riley Key.
Riley died in 2013 after battling leukaemia, and would have been seven on December 13. He was a member of the team and had a family connection to the Little Eds.
“We had special permission from the league to wear the shirts in memory of Riley. The team wears pink anyway in his memory, but we wanted to do something special,” said parent representative, Kirsty Badman.
The seven-a-side team beat Watlington by 19 goals to 0 on the day and retained their unbeaten run.
They held a bucket collection to raise money for the Wheel Appeal as Riley’s family wanted to help. There was also a minute’s silence ahead of the match in Riley’s memory.
His family attended the game and the team also hopes to continue fundraising for the Wheel Appeal later in the year.
