A team of Aston Villa Old Stars took part in a charity football match on Sunday, and helped to raise £4,000 for The Prince’s Trust.
Organised by West Midlands law firm Higgs & Sons, the family fun day at Stourbridge Football Club saw more than 300 people enjoy children’s activities, free football coaching, a charity raffle and a variety of food and drink.
The charity cash was raised through stalls, a raffle and programme sales.
The Higgs and friends team were eventually beaten 5-8 by the All Stars, but 16 year old Matt Dines was named Man of the Match for his first half hat-trick, and received his award from former Republic of Ireland international Mark Kinsella.
Tim Jones, Partner at Higgs said: “It was a great match enjoyed by all, played in the right spirit and despite losing the game, raising £4,000 for the Prince’s Trust was a magnificent result.
“To date, our hard working and dedicated trainees have raised in excess of £10,000 in their Million Makers Project and this event is just one example of the effort they have put in to raise funds for this fantastic cause.”
Higgs & Sons is based in the heart of the Black Country at the Waterfront Business Park in Brierley Hill. The growing team now boasts 100 plus specialist lawyers available to support clients in a comprehensive range of business and private sectors.
