Story

We are part of the Broad Community Trust in Weston super mare. We are looking to raise enough money to fund football kits for a 36 hour 5 a side match we are taking part in on 18/19 of August 2017.

The trust was set up in honour of Hannah Dean, she passed away November last year from cancer, leaving behind a husband and 2 young children, throughout the year we continually raise money for charity and donate it via Weston Hospice care and Macmillan.

Last year we took part in a 24 hour match which raised £10,000 and this year we are hoping to raise £15,000 by taking part in a 36 hour 5 a side match. We also raise money by taking part in events such as Sky diving, race nights, the London marathon and white collar zero to hero boxing matches.

This year we are looking to get enough money to buy kit for the event, which will include, shirts, shorts and socks, any additional funds we will donate to our two choose charities. If any company would like to sponsor us, we will put you as a sponsor on the kit and also mention you in any social media posts in the build up to the event.

To give you a snippet of the pain we put ourselves through last year, we lost toenails, suffered a broken ankle, a dislocated knee and all of us could not walk properly for 7 days after we had finished, the thought of 36 hours is filling some with dread and fear but its for an amazing cause and we can't wait to complete this challenge.

Thank you for your help

Everyone at the Broad Community Trust
