As part of the work Grantham Town Football Club carries out with in the wider Grantham Community they work with a number of charities across the town and encourage them to hold bucket collections at certain home games throughout the season.
On the 28th February during the game against FC United of Manchester the club opened its doors to The British Heart Foundation and in particular the Foundations mascot ‘Hearty’.
A collection before the start of the game the Foundation raised £146 from a bucket collection among supporters. This was boosted by a further donation from the club of £50 from the 50/50 draw which was not claimed, making a total of £196.
The club’s chief executive Keith Horton, said: “We are very pleased to work with a number of Charities throughout the season and it gives us great pleasure through both our own supporters but also the visiting supports to contribute to the very important work carried out by the dedicated groups of volunteers who all work tirelessly for their individual charities.”
