Playing video games or maybe kicking a football around?

For young Harry Forrest, he’s hosting a charity match at the County Ground, raising funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

After being rescued on a friends’ boat, he has been fundraising for the charity since last year.

Since beginning his endeavours, he has completed the ‘Mayday Mile’, except he did so every day with Wellington boots and his Cheltenham Town kit.

He also, according to Father Daniel, sat outside in the summer with a banner to fundraise on the main road in Bartestree.

“We really are tremendously proud of Harry. He’s quite quiet but he’s very determined.

“He plays for Bartestree and Cheltenham Town’s academy and is an absolute star. He’s the kind of kid who plays on a Saturday, is man of the match by a mile and is embarrassed about how well he played.

“Since he’s been doing this fundraising, he surpassed his £1,000 goal for the year, and this charity match is only going to add to it.”

The RNLI Charity Under-12 Football Match is being held on December 22nd at the County Ground, with kick-off at 2pm.

Alongside the match there will be a raffle held at half-time and a crossbar challenge at full-time.

Sweets and chocolates will also be available.
