A charity football match organised by a St Albans business has raised more than £1,000 for Watford’s Peace Hospice Care.

Football talent from Clydesdale Bank’s business and private banking South Region took on a team drawn from a number of Hertfordshire professional firms at Clarence Park, home of St Albans City FC, as part of Clydesdale Bank’s business week.

The event took place on on Monday, May 12 and raised £1000, including £500 of match-funding from Clydesdale Bank in Station Way.

David Clarke, head of Clydesdale Bank said: "Our charity football match was a fantastic way to kick off our Business Week activities. The event allowed us to engage in a fun way with our local professional community, raise much needed funds for the Peace Hospice and also give our local youngsters a shot at playing on a full-sized pitch.

"We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all who took part in the event and those who dug deep to contribute to a very worthy cause."
