A GROUP of young footballers from Cardross made the headlines 15 years ago for helping to raise cash for charity.

Here's how the story appeared in our April 1, 2004 edition...


BOYS from the U10 Red Arrow football club rolled up their sleeves and washed cars for children in Africa at Cardross Parish Church.

They raised £167 to buy footballs for children in Mzuzu, Malawi, who have been using rags rolled up into a ball instead.

The Arrows’ next project will be collecting old football shirts for the children.
