AN EAGERLY-ANTICIPATED match of the day in Rosyth on Saturday helped net more than £400 for a West Fife charity.

To celebrate a link-up between Oceaneering and Rosyth Football Club's 2011 age group, a family fun day – including a challenge match between club coaches and Oceaneering staff – was held at the Fleet Grounds in aid of Andy's Man Club.

A variety of activities, including bouncy castles, stalls, inflatables and a barbecue were also on offer during the day, which raised a total of £420.26 for the organisation, a support group for men over 18 that aims to challenge the stigma of mental health and promote suicide prevention.

In July, the club organised two free sports camps for kids aged between five and 12 and Kimberley Fraser, a registered coach and secretary of the 2011 team, said: "Oceaneering sponsor our 2011 team, and have provided us with things like rain suits and a shipping container to keep our equipment in, and want to get involved more within the community.

"It's a great feeling to know that you're giving something back. It was a good day, and the weather held out as well!

"We raised £420.66, which was really good, and we had other donations. For example, Bookers donated £100 of stock, like burgers and hotdogs; Stephens Bakery donated four-dozen rolls to help with our barbecue; Tesco Rosyth gave us hotdog and burger rolls, and cakes for our bake sale; and EATS Rosyth helped with cakes as well.

"It was a great community effort overall. Without their kind donations, we couldn't have done all that we achieved.

"It was great how the whole day turned out. We tried to make it low-cost to families, and the game was end-to-end and quite exciting too!"
