CANCELLED: Children in Need football match at Wednesfield Social Club

*Unfortunately this event has been cancelled at the last minute due to pitch conditions :-(

Pudsey Bear will be undertaking referee duties at a football tournament on Friday, in an event organised by the Wolverhampton Homes Partnership to raise much-needed cash for Children in Need.

The event, which will kick off at 5pm at Wednesfield Social Club in Amos Lane, Wednesfield, Wolverhampton, involves four teams from the partnership including community regeneration specialist Frank Haslam Milan (FHM) West Midlands, Thomas Vale Construction, Bullock Construction and Wolverhampton Homes.

Bullock has volunteered its Regional Director Richard Baker to referee the matches. The teams will also be wearing a Pudsey Bear eye patch to make it more interesting.

Money will be raised through the sale of football programmes at £2 each and sub-contractors and suppliers have been encouraged to donate £50 in return for having their business cards included in the programme.

Shaun Aldis, Director of Property Services for Wolverhampton Homes, said: “We want as many people as possible to come down and support the event on the day.

“We’re always looking for new ways of raising money for charity and we thought the football tournament was a fantastic idea. I’m sure it will be played in great spirit, and there will be plenty of entertainment available for anyone who wants to come down and watch on the day. I would like to thank the partners for organising the event.”

The tournament will boast four games lasting 40 minutes each including a match between FHM and Wolverhampton Homes, Thomas Vale and Bullock. Participants can also make use of a bar set up throughout the day where food is available.

For more information about sponsoring the event, or to make a donation to Children in Need, please call Gemma Edwards on 01675 461 661, Jon Rodway on 01902 867 950 or Sammy Sidhu on 01299 827 770.
