People dressed up as a hot dog and Spider-Man to play a football match in the name of charity.

The kick around at Clifton College Sports Ground in Abbots Leigh raised more than £1,200 for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St Michael’s Hospital, in Bristol, through the Cots For Tots programme, which provides accommodation for parents at the hospital.

It was organised by Andrew Sutera whose daughter Arianna was born almost three-and-a-half-months early with extremely under developed lungs.

Andrew said: “The help and support we received, both from NICU doctors and nurses and Cots For Tots House, helped us get through some very difficult times.

“Unfortunately due to the weather we had less people than expected but we all had a great time and thanks to everyone who has donated.”
