KENDAL Town have raised £580 in a recent charity match in support of the British Heart Foundation. 

Held on Sunday, the club hosted Castle Rangers against North West Water, with Castle emerging victorious by 7-2. 

The match was also played in honour of the late Gary Parkinson. 

Prior to the game, there was a minute applause by everyone in the crowd, while the game it’s self was a fitting tribute for a man who used to captain and play for Castle Rangers.

Castle Rangers were in dominant form and won the memorial trophy, on a fantastic day.

After the game Castle Rangers made the following said: “A massive thanks to everyone involved and who turned up to watch.

"A truly fitting game for a send off. And thanks to our rivals North West Water for the game.”

Gary Parkinsons son Dan Parkinson also thanked everyone for the day:

“On behalf of me and AJ and the family huge thanks for everything yesterday guys and especially to Carl Batty for organising it all seriously touched and a brilliant day."
