A junior football team will be proudly displaying the East Lancashire Hospice logo on their shirts for the next two seasons, after a fundraising dad sponsored the club.

Gareth Mayoh, who is the father of Tom and Jack Mayoh, the fundraising shorts brothers from Darwen, has chosen to sponsor the Darwen Rangers Junior Football Club on behalf of the hospice his sons have been tirelessly raising money for.

Mr Mayoh will sponsor the Under 11 Red’s team for two seasons, and the team’s training shirts now display the hospice logo on the front, rather than his own business's name, Asset Survey Solutions.

Mr Mayoh said: "I wanted to make more people aware of East Lancashire Hospice so that the hospice can continue to provide care for those who need it most.

"I decided to sponsor the team to put the hospice at the forefront of people’s minds."

Mr Mayoh's wife, Louise, was cared for by the hospice before she died of cancer last year.

His sons, Tom and Jack, have won awards for their incredible fundraising efforts as they’ve raised more than £31,000 for the hospice in memory of their mum.

Mr Mayoh added: "The hospice is a charity close to my family’s hearts who do wonderful work caring for people with life limiting illnesses."
