AFC Monton v Celebrity All Stars
Sunday 14th August 1pm Family donation £5

Full details here…


Celebs from Coronation Street, Emmerdale, and Hollyoaks as well as some former big name footballers are to star in a special match against AFC Monton for raise money for Henshaws Society for Blind People.

The match has come about after the family and friends of Worsely's Neil Splaine wanted to support a charity in his name. Neil, who died in a tragic motorcycle accident in January aged just 42, lost a sister a few years ago to diabetes and his other sister, Valerie, is going blind through the same disease. 

After Neil died, his family donated his corneas to medicine, and four people have already benefited. Now, family and friends are raising money for blind people by staging this match that sees Neil's team AFC Monton take on the Celebrity All Stars.

"Neil was an amazing guy, and a great friend, and helping the charity Neil's family think so much of is a perfect way to honour his memory" says Paul Donegan, a good friend of Neil's and the organiser of the match "He would be so proud that we are continuing to help support visually impaired and blind people across the UK"

The day will kick off with a junior match at around 11:30, with Neil's 9-year-old son Oliver, playing for his team, Oliver's Army against Monton Amateurs under 10s team. The celebrity match will kick off at 1pm.

Three-year-old blind Oscar O'Sullivan Hughes, the face of Henshaws latest fundraising campaign, is to kick off the match.

At the game there will be a half time raffle, barbeque, refreshment stalls and licensed bar.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.
