Claire Bennett, from Newhaven, who established Newhaven veterans’ football and Newhaven walking football, hosted a charity ball on Saturday to raise funds for people in Seaford with Down’s syndrome and special needs.
The charity ball, hosted in Seaford on Saturday 3rd December, was “a great success” and the raffle at the ball raised £350.
The money will go towards the running of our programmes.
Ms Bennett continues her work in the community and now has 60 women aged 30 to 60 playing football every single week.
According to Sussex County Football association, Ms Bennett will do “absolutely anything for her players, to make them feel comfortable and supported”.
