The Watford FC 'Fill the Vic' resale campaign has generated an incredible £4,491.65 for Peace Hospice Care.

This successful fundraising initiative encouraged season ticket holders who were freeing up their seat to contact the club for it to be resold.

Funds from the resale have been split between the Hospice and the clubs charity 'Watford FC's Community Sports & Education Trust'.

Stepping onto the Vicarage Road turf to receive the bumper sized cheque from WFC ticket team members, was Peace Hospice Care's Director of Fundraising, Ropinder Gill and  Head of Marketing and Communications, Jon Michael.

'We thank WFC and their fans for supporting the 'Fill the Vic' resale campaign, ' said Jon Michael. 'We appreciate how much the Hospice means to the fans.  Our services are there for  their friends, family members, neighbours and work colleagues if they ever need us.  

'Our relationship with the club goes from strength to strength. This campaign contributes towards the £4.2 million pounds in  charitable income we need to raise each year.'

WFC Head of Communications, Richard Walker praised the fans for their loyal support for the Hospice. 'We love our relationship with Peace Hospice Care and we take pride in the fact that our supporters love helping to raise funds for a great local cause,' he said.
