Camp Hill raised £1,000 for Cancer Research UK last weekend when all of the Solihull-based club’s senior teams – and some of the referees – played in pink socks.

Teams from across the club’s sections went pink to raise funds for the charity with bucket collections, a bracelet sale and profits from sales of the Camp Hill Ladies naked calendar taking the proceeds from a successful weekend to four figures.

Camp Hill ladies have built strong links with Cancer Research UK over the years by running in a number of Race for Life events and even being the face of campaigns in the West Midlands.

The initial fundraising weekend earlier in the season had to be postponed because of wet weather but the sun shone for the rearranged event.
