Asda in Keighley has kicked off its campaign supporting Bradford Disability Football Club.

The Bingley Street supermarket staged a bag pack and fun day, including football sessions in the car park led by BDFC coaches and Bradford City mascot Billy Bantam.

Over £1,800 was raised, with some match funding still to come.

And the previous day Asda worker Nick Kitchen – who plays for BDFC – and Keighley store manager Paula Watson had been with other BDFC players at City’s Valley Parade ground.

Mrs Watson said: “Me and my husband had watched the disability team play and were thrilled to see how much it meant to Nick and fellow City fans to play at Valley Parade.

“We could see what a positive impact the club can have on people’s lives.

“My store team has worked alongside BDFC to build a plan to help raise money and awareness of this truly great cause.”

BDFC, founded in 2002, has more than 100 members aged from six to 60. It is part of the Bradford City FC Community Foundation.
