A MAN who organised a charity football match at Oakwell to celebrate his 40th birthday says he is on the last push to reach his target.

Chris Foster held the match last Saturday at Barnsley Football Club's training ground - he is a life-long Barnsley fan and it was his dream to play at Oakwell.

The event has raised £644 so far for Barnsley Hospice - but Chris would love to reach his target of £1,000.

He said: "A big thank you to all of you who have donated and been so kind as to give money at this difficult time of cuts and uncertainty. It humbles me to have such generous friends." If you'd like to help Chris reach his target, go here: http://www.justgiving.com/ChrisFoster457
