Romford man’s charity soccer match will raise money for vulnerable children

A Romford man is hoping to raise thousands for charity.

Scott Emmons, 27, will be holding a seven-a-side charity football match for the NSPCC tomorrow (November 25) at Wanstead Cricket Club, Overton Drive at 11am.

Scott said: “The NSPCC does such vital work to help protect vulnerable children and young people, and I couldn’t think of a more worthy cause to raise funds for.”

Scott is also planning a number of other events for the charity, including a climb to Ecudor next September, which he hopes will take him up to his target of �5,000.
