Crowds gathered to watch the football and support Help for Heroes at Windsor FC's Stag Meadow ground on Saturday.


Members of the Coldstream Guards and 94 (Berkshire Yeomanry) Signal Squadron were offering information on what they do as well as supporting the charity.

Tina Peacock-Edwards, of Help the Heroes, was one of the volunteers hosting the stall and said people had been buying.

"It is nice just to talk about the charity too," she said.

One of the most popular attractions over the afternoon was the firing range provided by the Coldstream Guards of Victoria Street, where visitors could try their hand at target shooting.

Steve Rowland, Windsor FC club secretary, said: "As a community club, we aim to do two or three games a season where we allow free entry and we nominate a charity.

"I went for Help for Heroes because of the local army connections with the barracks."

Representatives from 94 (Berkshire Yeomanry) Signal Squadron had communications equipment with them to show how advanced technology can work anywhere in the field.

"The idea is to put on a bit of a show so people can see what they do rather than just going round with a bucket," said Steve.

Windsor FC beat Ash United 3-2.
