A charity football match and fun day have raised £2,000 for a hospital that supported a baby from Stevenage with a genetic disorder.
Nine-month-old Eden Prowse was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a newborn. On Saturday, friends and relatives of her parents Dan Prowse and Charlotte Sallis teamed up for a fundraising day in aid of London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital, including the charity match at the Baldock Arena.
The game pitted the Eden All Stars against a Hitchin Town XI. Dan, who switched from the Eden All Stars to the Hitchin team towards the end of the game, scored a goal for each side as Hitchin won.
There was then a fun day for the youngsters, followed by disco, raffle and more for the adults at Tom Tiddlers Tavern in Stevenage.
Dan told the Comet: “It was an amazing community spirit – overwhelming. Everyone has committed to doing it again next year.”
