BRADFORD (Park Avenue) and Ossett United have put up a huge effort in these difficult times to generate £500 for the Sandale Community Development Trust.

Although the pair's scheduled friendly at Horsfall on December 4 was called off due to heavy snow, supporters still donated £240 to the cause.

Avenue had previously agreed to match each pound raised and have even topped it up to reach the grand figure of half a thousand.

Sandale run food banks around the Bradford area and it is hoped the generous donations will make a small difference to families in need.
