Harrogate Railway FC has generated almost £2,000 for a defibrillator at Starbeck Primary Academy and sports equipment at Hookstone Chase primary school.

To raise the money, the club spent two years organising events, including Halloween and Christmas parties.

In total, the club raised £950, which was match-funded by Barclays Bank, taking the amount raised to £1,900.

Railway’s juniors recently made Harrogate High School their new home base.
