A community centre in Kettering raised more than £1,000 at its annual charity football match.

Ise Lodge Community Centre held the game on Sunday, August 30, with Team Bate defeating Team Waite 5-3.

Also on offer on the day was a barbecue, raffle and quiz, with all proceeds going to Down’s Syndrome charity Ups and Downs.

Winning captain Luke Harris said: “It was a great day with huge support from the local community and family and friends of the players.

“I used to work for the centre 10 years ago, but great thanks must go to Kerry Bate, Paul Bate and Sam Waite for their work.

“Next year we hope to get some former professional footballers down at the event.”
