Thunder raises £1,000 for England Amputee Football Association
Manchester Thunder raises £1,000 for England Amputee Football Association in charity clash with Australia.
A match between Manchester Thunder and the Australia Diamonds national side has raised £1,000.
The funds were donated to the England Amputee Football Association (EAFA) following the match between the Commonwealth and World Champions and a Thunder Select team.
A spokesman from the EAFA said: “This extremely generous donation from Manchester Thunder Netball, and their supporters, will have a huge effect on the charity and its ability to carry out its work especially in this year where the GBAF team are looking to honour the memory of captain Tom Jordan who sadly passed away this year after losing his battle with cancer.”
The exhibition match in July was a final warm-up for the Aussies, before the squad headed to Glasgow where they would go on to win gold, beating rivals New Zealand in the final.
