Members of junior football club had one goal in mind on during a match on Saturday, to raise as much as possible for charity.

Tigers Juniors FC, Rainham Road, Rainham, scored goal after goal during a penalty shootout challenge to raise £168 for Saint Francis Hospice.

The event was organised by Tony Atkinson, a coach for the Tigers Yellows under-7s team, after he heard a parent of a club member was taking on the 100-mile Prudential Ride London to Surrey challenge with a work colleague.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the parents and children who came along to support the penalty shootout and made it such a success,” said Anita McCarthy, a spokeswoman for the charity.

She added that the club has a “big heart”.

“[It} reaches out to help its community whenever it can,” she continued.

Since 2010, the club has raised £3,230 for the hospice in HaveringS-atte-Bower.
