A Goole man and charity committee from Tesco Distribution Centre are organising a Six-A-Side football tournament featuring twenty local teams to help raise money for good causes.
Tesco Distribution Centre team manager and on-site charity champion Matty Rockett (32) is gearing up the teams for the big day on Sunday, July 31 at Goole Cricket Club from 10am until late. It’s the third year the cricket club have hosted the annual event and Matty’s employers have sponsored the day, with a whopping £1,000 up for grabs to the winning team.
Teams taking part, such as Swinefleet, who have just scooped the Goole and Thorne Cup, NUR who have recently taken the Sunday League Cup title, and North Ferriby who have not only just won the league but also been promoted, will be going head-to-head with teams from the Tesco Network such as Hemsworth, Sheffield Extra and Hull St. Stephen’s, alongside teams of local lads who simply want to do their bit for charity and enjoy the ‘beautiful game’.
Tesco are in a charity partnership with Diabetes UK and British Heart Foundation, so all the money raised on the day will go to these fantastic causes. There will be something for everyone on the sidelines, so bring along the whole family and enjoy. The action-packed day will include a fun fair, bouncy castles, face painting, a visit from a fire engine for the children, lots of stalls and even a chance to have a picture taken with Olaf and a Minion!
To ensure all the funds raised on the day go straight to their intended good causes, Matty has set up a crowdfunding page to help cover the costs of the day such as getting the pitch marked, coverage from St John Ambulance and even the cost of the match balls. Any small donation which would contribute towards these costs would mean all money raised on the day goes straight to charity.
