A SCHOOLGIRL who has raised hundreds of pounds for good causes has handed over the cash.

Libbie Johnson (11), of Wath Park Road in Wath, organised a fundraising event in January to support Alzheimer’s Research UK and The Beeches Care Home in Wath where her grandad Jack Crowcroft is being cared for.

A charity football match between The Plough Over 35s from West Melton and a squad put together to battle them on the pitch brought in cash for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

The Beeches Care Home has received £610, Sheffield Children’s Hospital £300, and Alzheimer’s Research UK £610.

Libbie, a pupil at Wath Comprehensive, handed over the money at the Beeches Care Home, with her grandad present.

Libbie’s mum, Lesley Crowcroft, said her daughter was “excited” to hand over the money.

She added that the family is aiming to hold fundraising events again next year.
