The date has been set as Friday 16th June 2017 (the day before the Cumberland Show), when we hope to make a chunk of money for Hospice at Home West Cumbria’s, 30 for 30 appeal.
Our vision is a 6-a-side football competition, comprising of at least 10 teams; with entries from Armstrong Watson and other professional contacts.
Cockermouth School are kindly providing the venue for free, and with the entry set at £100 per team, we hope to see a considerable profit for the charity.
Kick-off will be at 6pm and we anticipate the tournament will end by 9pm.
The Hospice at Home West Cumbria vision is “To deliver high quality palliative and end of life care in West Cumbria, by providing services traditionally found in a hospice building to people in their own homes and local communities.” You can find out more about the charity on their website.
The £30 for 30 appeal is a concept based on the fact that it is the charity’s 30th anniversary during 2017, and as the organisers of an event we will be given £30 (sponsored by Sealy UK) to convert into as much money for the charity as we can. Our £30 will be spent on footballs to be used in the competition! You can find out more about the appeal here.
The closing date for entries is Friday 26 May so get in touch with us soon if you'd like to take part!
