The James Hackett Memorial Football Match was played and a Spalding skate park had a bluetooth shelter installed ten years ago in 2011




The James Hackett Memorial Football Match of 2011 aimed to educate young men about road safety.

The eight-a-side event was set up in memory of James, who passed away in a traffic collision on the A16 in 2008, aged just 18.

£900 was raised for BRAKE, a charity which aimed to educate teenagers about safer driving.

Delighted youngsters were pleased with the installation of a new skate park shelter ten years ago.

Campaigners managed to secure £8,000 of funding from the Awards For All Big Lottery, which was put towards a bluetooth shelter at the Spalding park.

It allowed them to connect wirelessly with their phones and play music, with celebration plans getting under way.
