Footie For Funds! – Help Save A Mothers Life


By Vicki Slingsby

After going round with collection boxes and collecting £202 at a dance competition I attended with my dance school last Sunday, I was racking my brains thinking of other low-cost fundraising possibilities and decided to organise a 5 a side football tournament. My partner plays a lot of football, scouts for Bradford City FC and does a lot of coaching so I knew he could help with contacts etc. I went to school with Sally and her sisters and I used to live next door to Liam, Sally’s husband.

The strength Sally and Liam have shown since Sally was diagnosed is amazing. As a mother, I understand that Sally needs to be here for her children. I get emotional every time I think that she may not see them grow up.

This is what has inspired me to organise this event.

Where and When?

The tournament will be held at Frame 2, Feather Road, Bradford, BD3 9DJ at 2pm on Sunday 26th February. The entry fee per team is £30. I also need referees willing to donate

I also need referees willing to donate their time and local businesses to sponsor the event. I am also appealing for donations of raffle prizes!

Anyone wishing to enter a team or can help in any way can contact me via Facebook or on my mobile 07730561563.
