Annual charity football matches were held during fun days on Saturday and Sunday in aid of Callum Pite’s Smile charity.

The charity was set up in 2013 in memory of Pinchbeck lad Callum Pite, who suffered from a rare form of bone cancer called Ewing Sarcoma and sadly passed away in January 2013, aged just 14.

The charity’s aim is to give a gift or outing to young people undergoing treatment for cancer. This is made possible by donations made to the charity and events held.

Saturday saw Pinchbeck United Football Club up against Spalding Wanderers and Pinchbeck versus Boston United in an under 18s match on Sunday.

Organiser Nigel Stevens said: “We’ve raised about £1,400 so far as the fun days were very successful.”

Other activities during the fun days included various craft stalls, a car boot sale and bouncy castles.
