Cheadle SMUFC have rallied round to provide Christmas donations to local charities.
Each of the 20 teams and groups within the club have raised £100 resulting in an overall total of £2,000.
Chairman of CSMUFC, Ian Morton, said: “Cheadle Toy Bank have been given £1,000 to support their work in ensuring that local children and families can have a good Christmas.
“A number of tablets and other items have been purchased and donated to the toy bank appeal.” Councillor Elizabeth Whitehouse said “Cheadle Toy Bank Appeal are incredibly grateful for the massive donation from Cheadle SMUFC and this donation will go towards gifts for children over ten years of age.”
