Club had fun day with Gunnersarus Rex and replica FA Cup present with over 300 attending

Collier Row JFC raised £1,100 for the Royal Marsden Hospital when hosting an end of season charity event last weekend.

The money has been donated as part of the George and the Giant Pledge, which was started by the parents of four-year-old George Woodall, who has been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. Over 300 attended the tournament and witnessed good football.

Face painting, Soccer Darts, Beat the Gunnersarus Rex were also taking place throughout the day as George turned up as the special guest to present medals.

Event organiser Colin Gilroy said: “It was a brilliant day and everyone at the club came together to contribute. I am so grateful to all that gave their support and made the event a success.

“The highlight of the event was when George made it along to present the medals to the boys who played.”
