Wirksworth Mayor for 2011-2012 Cllr Andy Pollock has given his support to Wirksworth Colts FC with a donation of £500.
He commented: “As part of my year in office, I have raised money to support local good causes.
“My focus has been on encouraging young people into sport. There is no doubt in my mind that the more young people are actively engaged in clubs like Wirksworth Colts, the more they will get from living in their community.”
Wirksworth Colts’ chairman, Chris Whittall, added: “This is a real boost to us. We are going to use the money to support even more young players into the sport. It is fantastic to get this level of help from the Mayor.”
