Fabulous fans at WFC played their part in turning their season ticket seats into a huge fundraiser for Peace Hospice Care.

By contacting the club every time they could not make a match, fuelled a great funding opportunity to re sell their seat and generate funds through this WFC intiative.

A season of freed up seats resulted in a massive £15,413.80 of re-sales split evenly between Peace Hospice Care and  the clubs registered charity Community Sports and Education Trust.

WFC Head of Supporter Communication and Sales, Richard Walker handed over a WFC cheque  of £7,706.90 to Peace Hospice Care physiotherapists Marie-Jeanne Chitnis and  Sarah Thompson, Hospice Occupational Therapist Mel Peerless and Community Fundraising Manager, Gill Crowson.

'Watford FC has always been a dedicated supporter of the amazing work that Peace Hospice Care provide to support people in our local community,' said Richard Walker.

'We are delighted the club's season ticket holders have helped to raise money by freeing up their unused seats.We intend to continue our support for Peace Hospice Care for many years to come.'
