Cornwall and Devon kick off charity football season


On Sunday 6 October, on a beautiful sunny day at Saltash, Cornwall, the first charity football match was held to raise funds for the South Western Ambulance Charity: Cornwall v South/West Devon.

When the whistle blew at the end of an action-packed and passionate match, with both teams battling hard in warm conditions, Cornwall won 2-1.

Special thanks goes out to:

  • Keila Klein (Paramedic - Derriford) who took over 700 photos!;

  • Jodie Stevenson (Student Paramedic from Plymouth University) who made delicious cupcakes, with money raised from sales going to the charity;

  • The Devon Football Association for providing a referee and lineman for the game;


and lastly and importantly a big thank you to everyone who gave up their time, donated raffle prizes and raised an amazing £367 for the South Western Ambulance Charity!
