THE popular Wirksworth Colts junior football club has benefitted thanks to a donation of £100 made by John Lester, landlord of The Limekiln pub in the town.

The club runs many teams for boys and girls across a wide age range and chairman Chris Whittall was pleased by the donation.

He said: “This is a very generous sum of money and will go a long way to helping us encourage more young players into community football. “It will enable us to provide essential training equipment which will benefit all the players in the club.”

John Lester from The Limekiln added: “We run a number of community events all through the year.

He continued: “The aim is to put as much back into the wider community as possible.

“I know that Colts run over 20 teams so I wanted to help them as much as I could.”
