Preparation for the inaugural World Cup-on-Sea 7-a-side charity tournament taking place at Roots Hall in May is warming up, and Dedman Gray, based on The Broadway in Thorpe Bay, are already training hard.
The event will see local businesses compete on the prestigious Southend United FC home ground, and Trust Links are just one of the lucky beneficiaries, along with HARP, Southend’s Homeless Charity.
As well as being an exciting opportunity to play in front of hundreds at Roots Hall, it is also set to be a fantastic fundraising event for two local charities.
Ros Luckman, our Fundraising Manager said "this event will be the very essence of community fundraising with local businesses coming together to compete at Southend’s home football ground, and spectators enjoying a fun filled day with their children, and all for two wonderful local charities.”
She continued "at Trust Links, we work with over 1000 local people every year, helping them to improve their wellbeing, learn new skills, and overcome personal barriers. Events like this demonstrate huge camaraderie for local people going through a hard time, and we so grateful to AJ Chambers and Nelson Chambers with support from Lloyds Bank for organising this event, and to all the players training so hard to make it a competition to remember!”
