WW Sport & Education Trust (WWSET) and local charity Karima joined forces to deliver a football tournament on Good Friday to raise money for Wycombe General Hospital.
Using the power of football, the tournament was organised at Cressex Astroturf as part of WWSET’s social inclusion programme.
It provided an opportunity for local young people to get together, participate, socialise, engage, keep fit and enjoy a safe and structured event.
As it was on a Friday, an important day in the Islamic week, and with many of the participants being Muslim, there were prayers before the tournament started, with Sheikh Tanveer Hussain, a respected scholar, leading the sermon and prayers.
The tournament raised £150 and the money will go towards the Scanner Appeal Breast Cancer Unit. The cheque was presented to Shirley Gomm by Aqeel Akram, WWSET social inclusion & health manager, Asif Hussain from Karima Foundation and Waqar Zaman, captain of the winning team of the tournament - Real Galacticos Madrid.
