AS Camboli Charity Football Match
- 16th May 2020
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
On the 16th May 2020, AS Camboli football club will be hosting their second annual Charity football match to raise money for The Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation (ECHO).
ECHO are a charity close to the club’s heart (no pun intended) as they provide support for children and young people with heart conditions, and their families from all across the UK. The support they provide includes hospital resources, support for siblings and fathers, antenatal classes and community events. They rely on volunteers and fundraising to continue the great work they do.
Daniel Welburn, son of current manager Tom, was born with congenital heart defects that required corrective surgery at birth. Daniel underwent two lifesaving operations at St. Thomas’ Hospital, London shortly after birth. Daniel’s family are indebted to ECHO for all their support during this difficult time, as well as the Evelina hospital and the many wonderful staff there who saved Daniel’s life.
AS Camboli football club will play an exhibition match for the prestigious ECHO Trophy contested by our existing squad v ‘Club Legends’ at Farnborough Town’s, Cherrywood Road stadium on Saturday 16th May 2020.
Last year’s match was extremely well supported and an evenly fought contest finished in a 1-1 draw.
Farnborough Town have very generously helped to host this year’s event which is being privately funded so that every penny from the match including ticket sales, player sponsorship, mascots, raffles etc. will be going to The Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation. The work that they all do to help other children and their families (including the ongoing support for families and children like Daniel) will benefit directly with all the money raised from the match.
You are invited to show your support for the match and the charity by sponsoring players, buying a ticket for the match, becoming a mascot for the day, taking part in the match itself or joining us for any of the activities we hope to have organised on the day. Volunteers to help and fundraising ideas are also welcome!
Information on raffle prizes and auction items will appear here as they are kindly donated.
