THE fund set up to help give the Crosshill woman, who lost her limbs through Sepsis, a new bionic hand will be backed on Saturday June 16 by a charity football match at Dallas Doyle Park, in Ballingry.

The game will involve Lochore Castle v Alan Mackie's Ballingry All Stars

and will kick-off at 1pm.

Marguerite Henderson suffered from the Sepsis attack after getting a paper cut and such was the intensity of the infection the medical team looking after her discovered that the only way to save her life was to remove her arms and legs.

While gran Marguerite has been coming to terms with the situation, her family set up the fund to raise money to get her bionic limbs and a special wheelchair to increase her mobility.

Just last month a charity concert run by the Lochgelly based Zodiac Dance School raised almost £3,000 for the fund and now the organisers of the charity match hope to raise a big sum for Marguerite and also the Lochore United 2008s.

The current Lochore Castle team will take on the All Stars of Ballingry which consists of ex-football players from the area and there are some very well known names in the All Stars line-up.

Helping promote the event Alana McGregor said: "We are a local football team wanting to do raise funds for the Marguerite Henderson Fund.

"It will be a fun day but the teams will be looking to do well and it is all in a good cause with the Lochore United 2008s also benefitting.

"The cafe will be open at the game and there will also be some little fundraising games and a raffle.

"After the game drinks and refreshments will be available at the Craigie Bar, in Ballingry, when all will be welcome".

The Benarty All Star squad includes some handy performers of the past, Jamie Paterson, Gordon Mackie, Lee Reddington, Ricky Saunders, Gary Paterson, Mo Doyle, Alan Mackie, James Davis, Dennis Currie, John Ford, Harry Howieson, Tt Lowrieson, Scott Berry, James McShane and Dean Bruce.

Lochore Castle players will be, John Mackie, Declan McGregor, Darren Mackie, Raymond Morgan, Jordie Hepburn, Frank Hepburn, Barry Bruce, Gordon Brown, Brian Haldane, Declan McQuade, Ryan McQuade and Kenneth Stewart.
