Harlow Young Labour raises over £300 for Paringdon Pirates Walking Football Club
ON Sunday 12th November, members of Harlow Young Labour and local Labour councillors hosted a charity walking football tournament in order to raise money for the Paringdon Pirates Walking Football Club.
The event, which was held at the Paringdon Sports and Social Club, was a fantastic success. The teams all braved the cold and put on some exciting matches featuring excellent displays of skill as well as some valiant, but ultimately fruitless, efforts.
The tournament was ultimately won by ‘The Dale Winton Walkers’, who received a trophy and individual medals for their achievement.
Chris Vince, one of the event organisers and the Labour candidate for Great Parndon said: “The event was a great success bringing together the local community in an exciting way and I am so glad to have been involved in it.
“My thanks especially go to Mark Watson and his Paringdon Pirates Walking football team, the referee, Brian, who did a sterling job, all the members of Harlow Young Labour and everyone who took part on the day, including a few Harlow Labour Councillors.”
Harlow Young Labour members would like to extend their thanks to everyone who supported the event. We would especially like to thank Paringdon Sports and Social Club for allowing us to host the event there and being so highly supportive of the team and the tournament.
