On Saturday 1st June, the Annual Bury Supporters' Charity 5-a-side Tournament will once again take place at PlayFootball, Bury College.
This will be the 10th Anniversary of the tournament, including:
- Charity Prize Raffle
- Food For All Players
- Competitive 5-a-side Tournament
Limited spaces available, £60 per team.
This year's invited charity is Liv's Trust.
Liv's Trust CIO has been set up in memory of Olivia Campbell-Hardy, who was killed in the Manchester Arena terror attack.
Steve Goodman, Olivia's 'Papa,' is running the trust with a group of trustees of family and friends to help under 25s in Greater Manchester, get help and receive education in music & dance.
He said: "We're starting small, and we hope to be able to provide musical instruments or even a pair of dance shoes for those who need them."
The main organiser of the day and keen Bury Supporter, John Raftery said: "We are delighted to invite Steve and the Liv's Trust team to the tournament to be our chosen charity for this year.
This really promises to be a great event with our local professional football team, local businesses, and local people joining together to play 5-a-side football, and also raising money for a local Charity."
