By Lauren Gemmell: Air force members in Staffordshire are staging a charity match for Help for Heroes.

Organisers of the game, which will take place at Ball Haye Green FC in Leek, hope to raise £400 for the charity.

More than 30 players from the Squadron of the Air Training Corps based in Leek, Buxton, Longton and Cobridge are all set to take part.

Organiser Gareth Jones said: “I wanted to arrange this match for several reasons.

“It’s the Leek Squadron’s 30th anniversary this year and we haven’t done a big fundraiser for a number of years.

“Also, it’s a good way of strengthening bonds between other local squadrons.”

Supporters are welcome, and a donation of £5 is requested.

After the game there will also be reception and a charity auction.
