A charity football match, to raise funds in memory of popular Bridlington roofer Peave Bellerby who sadly passed away earlier this year, has raised over £10,000.
Local goalkeeping coach Gavin Kelly organised the match at the Queensgate Stadium with a Bridlington Town 2003 team and a Hull City ex Tigers squad.
Gavin, who was a good friend of Peave’s, was delighted with how the fundraising event went and also thanked the large crowd, who turned out in their hundreds, for attending the match day fixture .
“I am so proud to announce the figure raised from the Peave Bellerby Memorial Game was an incredible £10.009. We also have £1155 to add to the total from the charity six-aside tournament at the CYP.”
The funds will be split between Cancer Research UK and the Candlelighters Children Cancer charity. Before Peave’s event, there was also a charity football match in memory of local teenager Jackson Walton
“I would like to say a massive thanks to everyone who donated money and prizes, helped out and supported the two fundraising events.” said Gavin.
He also paid tribute to Dom Taylor for his invaluable assistance as well as many others who helped to make both events a great success.
The next fundraising event for Peave will be the World Tough Mudder challenge which will be undertaken by Blast Fitness Gym owner Steve Tighe in November.
