The fifth charity fundraiser organised in memory of a Hornchurch football player Matt Sell who died in 2002 was a resounding success with £8,103 raised for Diabetes UK.

Organised by The Cromer Park Foundation with volunteers from Diabetes UK and The Roundtable, The Cromer Park Family Fun Day in Henderson Sports & Social Club in Harold Park on Saturday, July 21 was a hit with residents.

Pete Sell told the Recorder: “It was really good a great success. We had quite a lot of bouncy castles - I think the Helter Skelter was a very popular ride.

“Mr Custard and Jelly Jade put on two great shows and for the live music The Mojo Rising absolutely smashed it.”

In keeping with tradition, two teams made up of locals and former members of the Cromer Park FC football club went head-to-head for the Matt Sell Trophy.
