At half-time during Southport’s match against Gateshead on Saturday, a presentation of £1,500 was made by Trust in Yellow to Macmillan Cancer Support for the funds raised through the sale of our pre-season kit.
For the first time ever, Southport played their eight warm-up matches in a unique pink strip, having swapped their trademark yellow and black shirts to raise funds in memory of Sally Devine, who left a legacy to the Trust following her death in 2011.
The presentation was made on behalf of the Trust by Sally’s partner, Craig Jackson, to representatives from Macmillan.
The Trust has been delighted with the response to the initiative, with the 24 player-worn kits all sold within a week of being made available. The final sum presented also included a donation from Southport chairman Charlie Clapham.
The Trust would like to thank the fans, players and management who supported the project, as well as Rob and Julia Urwin and Colin Aindow for their work in making it a success.
The shirts were very kindly sponsored by PVC Vendo who are the only commercial fleet cleaning professionals that provide a nationwide truck washing service on the customer's site, 24 hours of the day, 365 days of the year.
