24 hours of football

Date: 
Wednesday 18 October 2017

Thank you to Karl  and his friends and family, who organised a sponsored five-a-side football match to raise funds for Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. It was, however, no ordinary football match; it lasted for a whole 24 hours! Karl was inspired to fundraise following his six-year-old brother Tristan’s diagnosis of Cone Rod Dystrophy, a severe genetic eye condition. 

Karl and his four brothers, from Denton, had around 20 friends and family helping them in their challenge, and they raised over £2,200! Well done to all involved.
