An inspired group of Sheffield Wednesday supporters are holding their semi-final stage of their Cystic Fibrosis Charity Cup tournament this week.
The team was founded last year, with the objective to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Ward at Sheffield’s Children Hospital.
Founder, Jorden Busby, knows all too well about the struggles obtained by those who suffer from cystic fibrosis as his fiancée unfortunately has the condition.
Busby, his father Lee Busby, and the rest of the team have put a great deal of time and effort to organise their first match where they played against The KOP End in last year’s event. They raised a grand total of just short of £300.
With new players signed, they are hoping to beat their previous figure at this year’s knock-out tournament.
Four teams will be competing in the semi-finals on Sunday 6th August 2017. The first match will be FC Swinton Owls vs Aston Athletic and will be a 10:30am Kick off.
The second match will then be played at 13:00 and this will be Cafe Sport B vs The KOP End FC. During the event, there will be a tombola, tuck shop and much more!
The final will then be played on Sunday 13th August 2017 and the kick off will be at 13:00. The winner of the tournament will receive a trophy and will be named champions of the Cystic Fibrosis Cup!
The Tournament will take place at Swinton Academy, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, S64 8JW.
All donations will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, and can be given at the event itself. Or go to their funding page now!
The more people attend, the more difference the event can have on many children being treated in Sheffield.
Let’s make it a year to remember!
