Young football team on course for charity cash

Youngsters from a Paisley football team are putting themselves through a gruelling assault course to raise money for charity.

The St Peter’s Boys’ Club 2006 team are fundraising for the Brightest Star charity which was set up to support bereaved families who have lost a child.

More than 30 players and their family members are being sponsored to complete the Scottish Assault Course, in Ayrshire on Saturday, June 10.

The team has set up a JustGiving page and has set a target of raising £200 for the Renfrew-based charity.
