A group of dockers raised a whopping £6710 for a young girl with a rare brain condition.

The employees from Forth Ports in Grangemouth held their 14th annual charity football match against colleagues from Tilbury Port in England last month.

The Grangemouth team won 6-1 on this occasion, but the real winners were the Penman family from Carronshore, who require funds to help care for their five-year-old daughter Sara, who was born with Joubert syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.

The big game, a charity walk, and a charity night in the Oxgang Hotel, helped coin in just over £4000, but the gang at Tilbury came up with even more money to produce the final total.

Organiser Adam Gillies: “It was brilliant for the guys at Tilbury to do that. The Penman family thought we were going to raise a couple of hundred pounds, so they were quite amazed when we came back to them with the total.

“We thank everyone who donated prizes and helped us raise this money.”
