BECCLES Town FC will be using two events to raise money for the NHS next month.
With the return to normality, the club are planning to use the Annual Hospital Cup Final as an opportunity for the local community to support the work of the NHS both locally and nationally.
The day is intended as a celebration of football at the same time supporting Beccles Hospital, as a thank you for their work during the pandemic, and more widely by supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The game will take place at College Meadow (pictured above) on Sunday, August 1st at 2.30pm, when Beccles Town FC entertain near neighbours Beccles Caxton FC.
Beccles Ladies will take on Horsford Ladies during the morning (11am kick off) with small- sided games for younger members of the club interspersed around these games.
Beccles Town Chairman Mark Jermey said: “There will also be activities for the club younger members, their families and friends throughout the day including Speed Shot, an inflatable five-a-side pitch, inflatable slides, bouncy castle, sumo ring and a dual run.
“Collection buckets will be available at the ground, and we hope that everyone enjoying the day will contribute toward both causes.
“The day before will see 20 riders cycle from Addenbrookes to Beccles raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust who have supported one of our younger club members, Aimee Carter, aged 16, and her family, since she was diagnosed with leukaemia in January. Aimee’s mum, Marie, will be playing in the Ladies’ game the next day after completing the 80-mile ride.”
