This family focussed event at Glades FC in Solihull is being organised for the second time in support of young Harry Price. It is £10 entry per player and all funds raised on the day from the tournament and fundraising around the club will go to Cure Leukaemia.
Harry's uncle, Paul Donlon, is organising the event:
“We first did the tournament two years ago and managed to raise £13,000, and Harry was certainly our inspiration,” says Paul.
“We all moan about a sniffle and a cold, but when you think what Harry and other patients have been through, that is what drives us on.
“He has been prodded around, had things pumped into him and sucked out, all the sickness, and it’s all for the right reason of hopefully making him better.
“But he never uses it as an excuse for anything, and just gets on with it.
“He was there at the first event and, although he is still under treatment, he is planning to come along to this one, which we hope will be another great day.
“We are planning for 48 teams to take part, and there will be other things going on with different stalls and music and we are planning for a really happy family event to raise lots of money for Cure Leukaemia.”
