FRIENDS of Karole Woodthorpe are being invited to cheer on players in a charity football match on Saturday.

Karole, from Kingsmead, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, and an online justgiving appeal is aimed at raising funds for immunotherapy treatment in Germany.

The charity match is being staged at Middlewich Town’s Seddon Street ground at 2pm.

Lining up will be an over-30s team managed by Karole’s husband Colin, and an under-30s side managed by her sons Elliott and Nathan.

Colin, Elliott and Nathan will also be playing, and Karole’s other son, Ashley, the mascot for the match, is due to come on as a sub.

The match has been organised by Dave Tickle, the first team coach at Winsford United and a friend of Karole’s, and Middlewich Town’s joint manager Ross Speight.

Admission is £5, and children under 15 are admitted free if accompanied by an adult.

There will be a bouncy castle, food and stalls, and a half-time penalty competition, and Karole will be there to cheer on the players in the 90-minute match.
