Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Match For The Day is a 24 hour 5 a side football match, in order to raise money for Marie Curie.

Myself (Paul) and my brother Dave organised the first MFTD in 2014, inspired by my Mum who was battling cancer so bravely at the time.

Before she passed away, my Mum knew that we were planning to organise another MFTD and requested that it was in aid of Marie Curie.

The care they gave her both during the years of treatment she had and especially during her last weeks and hours was amazing. As she said herself on numerous occasions-  "it was 7 star!!"

The way they looked after and supported both my Mum and the rest of the family made such a difference during what was such a difficult time and this is our way of showing our appreciation as well as helping to to raise money so that others in the same situation are able to benefit.
