Redditch footballers pitch in to help orphans
Dozens of footballers have taken part in a fundraising tournament to support orphan care around the world. They raised over £1,600, which will go on to care for orphans in places like Palestine, Pakistan and The Gambia through our OrphanKind programme.
The ‘Cup of Champions’ 6-a-side tournament took place in Redditch on Sunday 22nd May, with teams from Birmingham, Coventry, Stoke, London and Loughborough displaying their skills on the pitch.
Jameel Hussain and Qasim Hafiz’s team ‘Incredibles’ took the trophy, beating the Penny Appeal ‘#TeamOrange’ players 2-0 in the final.
Haroon Mota, Midlands Fundraising Manager for Penny Appeal, said: “Football and fundraising are fantastic ways to unite people and it was wonderful to see so many coming together to help orphans and enjoy a bit of friendly competition.
You can care for an orphan for just 50p a day – call 03000 11 11 11 to start your sponsorship now.
