Play Specialists Donna Day and Sharon Samuels from Willow Ward, were delighted to receive a cheque for £700 for Valley Hospital Charity's Lollipop Fund from the FA Community Shield, courtesy of Dartford Football Club (DFC). 

DFC has been of great support to the Children's Ward at Darent Valley Hospital through raising funds and providing opportunities for children to meet the players. DFC applied to the FA, and were delighted to be chosen to receive a grant from the Community Shield 2018, which is raised through football match ticket sales. On receiving the grant DFC chose 3 local charities to benefit, each receiving a share of the grant. 

Donna and Sharon were delighted at the timing of the donation. As the weather is getting warmer they are keen to purchase some new bikes and ride on toys for the children in the Ward garden. 

A big thank you to Dartford Football Club for their continues support.
