A SUPERMARKET chain was on the ball when it teamed up with Doncaster Rovers for a charity draw.

Midfield player and Inca Trekker James Coppinger visited the Co-operative in Rossington to receive a £1,000 cheque for the NSPCC.

Chris Cliff, the store manager and a Rovers season ticket holder, got involved in raising money for the NSPCC Inca Trek by running a charity draw.

The Co-operative has Mencap as its designated charity but Chris decided to make it a shared raffle so Doncaster Rovers donated an NSPCC green and white hooped shirt and a signed team shirt.

Chris also put in a 32ins Toshiba LCD TV from the Co-op, and Coca-Cola donated tickets for games.

Some 14 Co-ops across Doncaster sold tickets for the draw.

James Coppinger said: “This is an amazing effort by the people at the Co-op and fantastic that they raised this amount. I was honoured to be asked to make the draw.”
