The Free Kicks Foundation received £6,400 from Bauer Media Group, and nearly £3,200 from AEGON, after fundraising from both companies during 2018.

The charity’s founder Steve Thorpe said: “We were honoured and humbled by recent donations received from city companies Bauer Media Group and AEGON.

“This money will make a huge difference to our charity and we plan to spend it all locally, giving children nominated by organisations around the county the chance to be mascots at Peterborough United.
