Corby is to host a charity football match this evening.
The Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Management and Community Safety Team are going head-to-head with the Police’s Safer Communities Team.
The game, which kicks off at 6pm at West Glebe Park, will raise money for the Lakelands Hospice.
Corby Borough Council’s Senior Neighbourhood Manager, Craig Spence, said:
‘With the Corby Police’s Safer Communities Team just recently moving in to share office space with our team we thought what better way to welcome them than to organise a bit of friendly competition? Not only will this be a great team building exercise but it will also raise money for a great local charity, the Lakelands Hospice.
‘We hope that many local residents can come along and cheer on the teams and if possible help us raise a bit of extra money for the charity.’
Community and Partnerships Inspector, Julie Mead, said:
‘The team are really looking forward to taking part in this match. It will be a great opportunity for our Community safety partnership to integrate further into our communities whilst raising funds for a local cause close to all of our hearts’
