VESTAS staff raised more than £850 for the Isle of Wight branch of the National Autistic Society at a charity football match.

Nearly 400 employees and their families attended the match at Westwood Park, home of Cowes Sports FC, to watch Vestas (England) take on Vestas (Rest of the World).

Both teams were made up entirely of Vestas employees on the Island but the 22-man Vestas (ROTW) squad featured players who originate or have roots in other countries, including Italy, Nigeria, Spain, Ghana, New Zealand and Mexico.


ROYAL Mail Bridgwater and Vagabonds Carnival Club will play a football match tonight in memory of their late friend Andrew “Parks” Parker, who died on March 28, two years after being diagnosed with skin cancer.

The match will take place at Bridgwater Town Football Club at 6pm.

Entry is free and will include raffles and auctions of prizes including a signed photo of racing driver Damon Hill and a golf club donated by professional David Dixon.
