Charity football event raises thousands for C.R.Y

Sue Deaville, our Stoke Branch Manager pictured back row second from the right, formed part of the only female team participating in a recent charity football event in support of C.R.Y. This small fact didn't however dampen the competitive edge of the all opposing male teams, whose egos we are guessing simply wouldn't yield to being beaten by a bunch of girls.

Sue carries the bruises to prove the competitive nature of the event but feels that every lump was worthwhile and is taking her revenge by shaming everyone that put 5 or more goals passed her team. Shame on you boys! Share the blog please ladies.

The event in aid of C.R.Y (Cardiac Risk in the Young) was well attended and involved some 16 x 7 a side teams who battled through 4 rounds of tough competition, resulting in a final tournament winner of Audley under 21's/ Well done gentlemen!!

The event raised £1784.35 on the day and any further donations would be very welcome and can be made by visiting the Just Giving website here.

The charity was set up as a memorial to Daniel Hughes by his family to help C.R.Y. (Cardiac Risk in the Young) reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death through supporting C.R.Y.'s screening programme.

The aim is to fund the screening of young people within the local community, of which Daniel was a very active member, in order to avoid further premature loss and the suffering that loss leaves in it's wake.

Sue commented that 'One life saved is worth all the effort and although Daniel is sadly missed by all those that knew and loved him, this was a great way to remember him and I'm sure he would want us all to continue on celebrating what were all too brief but wonderful memories we all have of him'
