Farm Africa football tournament 2013
What a day……..
The football tournament on Sunday the 28th of July was a massive success and I am extremely flattered and humbled by what everybody involved one put into it. I can’t begin to describe how grateful I am for every ones support. Every team was well up for it, most got proper kits, had practices and trials, travelled long distances (from heights of Lancashire to the depths of Kent), and all gave up their time to support the day and Farm Africa charity. All of this was of course in aid of our Mount Kilimanjaro climb next month, more details here http://www.farmafrica.org/chefs--kilimanjaro-climb/chefs-kilimanjaro-climb
Congratulations to Direct Meats the 2013 Farm Africa football champions
Thank you all below for your support
The whole team at farm Africa for helping to put this together and at such short notice, Sarah Wren must be able to breathe a sigh of relief now we aren’t exchanging constant phone calls and emails.
Lee Bye for the original idea, I didn’t think we had time to get it together.
All the teams for taking it so seriously, paying the entry fee and being right up for it, also bringing your WAGS and entourage which helped boost the spend on raffle tickets and Hog Roast.
Everyone who gave a prize for the raffle, to many to name but all are equally appreciated
Mark Haywood (Dingley Dell), Direct meats, Matt Wilby and Anglia produce for their parts in arranging the food
John Arandhara-Blackwell for giving up his time to take some amazing shots of the day, the shots are brilliant and really captured the spirit of the day see below for a selection.
The day raised £1985 in total and was then taken over the £2000 mark at the last second with a cash donation of £40 by the Direct meats goal keeper.
Many people have asked for this to be an annual event which I and Farm Africa are very keen on arranging. I already have ideas on how to make it bigger and better for next year. If you have any constructive feedback on what we can do to improve the day please message me through the contact section of this website.
