Here at OPM we have managed to cobble together a rag tag squad of reprobates to enter the 2019 Bradford Fives 5-a-side tournament on Thursday 21 Nov 2019. In our bright pink shirts we looked the part, even if we did not manage to win the tournament.
Our Team and our sponsors joined together to raise money for charity. Donations from friends and family alike helped us smash our target goal. We raised funds for 2 charities, Sue Ryder and Parkinson’s UK.
We may have not raised an award for our football on the night, but we did WIN one award that was very special to us – We raised the most money for charity of all the teams who played in the tournament.
We are now in training to take part in more charity events next year.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who sponsored the OPM Team – Together we are helping people who need us!
But it would be great for even more people to be generous and back our push to raise funds for both causes.
These charities help so many families, so your support for us and for them would be greatly appreciated. The football is a bit of fun but the cause is the important bit.
Below is a JustGiving link for our OPM Team page.
Thank You in advance for your help!
Overall Total Raised : £1,878.95
