CHAIRMAN of the Pioneer-backed charity Miles of Smiles, Mick Hughes, went to Vauxhall Motors Sports & Social Club to receive a cheque for £1,350 raised during a major five-a- side football festival staged there.
Handing it over were Linda Edmunds, youth development officer of Vauxhall Motors FC, and festival organiser Steve Foulkes.
A total of 160 teams from across Wirral, Chester and Flintshire competed in age groups ranging from seven years to under-16s.
Each player donated £1 to Miles of Smiles, which each year sends sick, disabled and underprivileged children from Ellesmere Port, Chester and Flintshire on a four-day trip to Disneyland Paris.
The donation will pay for 12-year-old Lisa Helsby and her mother Jayne, of Grace Road, Ellesmere Port, to experience a trip of a lifetime in September.
