Youngsters from Newark Youth FC have partnered with local adults to fundraise for children affected by poverty in Bangladesh.
The football youth have taken part in various activities to fundraise and raise awareness of how young people who are of the same age as them live in a developing country.
One of the aims is to teach young children how to give and raise charity and friends and family have been approached to raise sponsorship money.
More importantly, team members have independently raised funds by giving up sweets, drinks and even fasting for a week.
