A Birstall-based company held a fund raising football tournament inspired by a brave terminally ill girl.
Employees from Crossroads Bus and Truck Limited raised more than £3,000 at the event held at Batley Sports and Tennis Centre in Howden Clough.
The tournament was inspired by a colleague’s five-year-old niece Darcy Jo who has an inoperable brain tumour.
Barnsley-based Darcy’s uncle, Chris Dickinson, who works at the firm on Pheasant Drive in Birstall, got together with fellow staff and customers to help raise the cash on Saturday.
Staff at the company, which is a Volvo franchise, unanimously nominated Darcy’s Days as their charity of the year after hearing her story.
The money raised will be donated to Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Weston Park Hospital, where Darcy has undergone radiotherapy treatment.
HR Manager of Crossroads Bus and Truck Limited Kerah Laher said: “There were a few injuries and a few of the games were close.
“But everyone had a good laugh and more importantly we raised a lot of money.”
The 18-team tournament saw Morley-based business Eurotrial UK crowned the eventual winners.
A family fun day followed, which included a bouncy castle, an ice cream van and refreshments.
Mrs Laher added: “Darcy’s parents, Joanne and Dave, have been raising money to give their daughter a trip to Euro Disney. They wanted to donate the money to the hospitals to give something back and to help raise awareness.
“Darcy’s Days is the chosen charity this year so we hope to continue raising more money throughout the year.”
Anyone wishing to donate can by visiting Crossroads Bus and Truck Limited, who has collection buckets at the Birstall site.
