A further £1,000 has been netted for the MRI Scanner Appeal – thanks to Northallerton Town Football Club.
At last year’s Annual General Meeting, Ebac Northern League Chairman Mike Amos pledged to walk 500 miles around the 44 league club grounds to mark his 20th and last season as chairman.
He was joined by supporters from different clubs with half the money raised going to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and the remaining amount divided into £1,000 segments to community based charities nominated by the clubs.
Northallerton Town FC Chairman Les Hood said: “The charities were drawn at a League dinner at Ramside Hall where we were pleased to learn that not only had Mike raised just under £28,000 but our nominated charity – the Friarage Scanner Appeal – was drawn out.
“We’re pleased to be supporting such a great cause and to help get this vital piece of equipment into the hospital.”
