Teams hit back of the net at charity football match

Two local businesses took to the famous Ewood Park pitch at the weekend to battle it out in front of friends, family and football fans and raise vital funds.

The teams from Hippo Car Leasing and Organic Insurance tried to pley it cool in the heat on Sunday to take the victory. On the day Hippo were victorious but everyone's a winner as together they raised around £1,000 for patient care.

A sweet stall, tombola and raffle helped to generate funds on the day and players all donated to take part in the once in a lifetime opportunity to play at a Championship football ground.

Huge thanks go to both teams and all those who helped to organise the event.

Take a look at our gallery of images from the day.
