A charity football match is taking place to help children battling cancer.

Cramlington-based controlled bolting solution provider HTL IS taking part in a match with the town’s Sainsbury’s store to raise money for Jessica’s Sarcoma Awareness.

The match will take place on Sunday at Croft Park, home of Blyth Spartans. Kick-off is 10.30am and tickets are £2.

There will also be a host of Attractions for families including hot food, ice cream and children’s rides.

Jessica’s Sarcoma Awareness was set up by the family of Jessica Robson who sadly lost her battle to a rare form of cancer, alveolar sarcoma, at the age of 18.

The charity supports children battling cancer by fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust and Sarcoma UK, who helped Jessica during her cancer battle.

The ultimate aim is to secure a site in Northumberland to build a lodge.

Jessica’s family said: “Once again we would like to take this opportunity to thank HTL and Sainsbury’s for all of their support and commitment.

“This continued support helps us drive our charity forward and encourages new supporters.

“Jess was so determined to beat cancer and it is wonderful to see the staff at HTL and Sainsbury’s coming together to help raise awareness of the children battling cancer every day.”
