Charity’s six-a-side football match

A NEWLY formed charity set up to help sick children is holding a fundraising football tournament next month.

Charity for Kids (CFK), which was launched last month by Paul Harris and Carl Denne, from Hastings Kickboxing Academy, is hosting the six-a-side match on Sunday, October 30 from noon to 6pm at Horntye Sports Complex.

This is a one-off fundraiser and all money goes towards the charity.

There will be a total of 16 teams of four people taking part, with groups playing 10 minutes each way.

The cost is £30 per team, cash or cheque made payable to Charity for Kids, with medals for the winners and runners-up.

The competition is open to all football abilities from the age of 16 upwards.

This is offered on a first come first served basis, and the charity will need payment in full to confirm their place by October 16.

Mr Harris and Mr Denne are trying to raise money for the family of two-year-old Amber-Rose Sims, of Athelstan Road, who suffers from central sleep apnea.

This means she can stop breathing while asleep and needs oxygen tanks, even when she goes out with her family.

Charity for Kids wants to build an outside decking area for the toddler’s family.

The new organisation is also battling to raise £5,000 so as to become a registered charity.

Charity for Kids would like to hear from companies wishing to sponsor the upcoming six-a-side tournament.
