Daniel Robinson and PAH raise over £1500 for St Clare Hospice with charity football match

Charity / Mon 14th Aug 2023 at 09:41am

LAST Sunday, team Daniel Robinson & Sons took on team Princess Alexandra Hospital in a charity football match at the Harlow FC stadium, in front of a maximum capacity crowd.  

Despite a truly valiant effort by our defiant and determined undertakers, PAH were the better team on the day, winning 5-0.  It is without doubt that everyone gave their all, including our mature back four with a combined age of 260 years!

There were times when the game was very close, but the PAH team were just a little stronger, with more youth on their side.  Our thanks to our team Managers Ben and Trevor and PAH team Managers Ian and Mark, for making the game possible. 

Luckily there were no major `casualties’ and no staff from PAH were required for their professional services!

Overall, there is no doubt that it was St Clare Hospice who were the ultimate winners on the day, with in excess of £1600. being raised.  What a fantastic outcome!

Sami, from St Clare Hospice said, `it was great to be involved in the Daniel Robinson vs Princess Alexandra Hospital charity match. To see so many people turn out in support of both teams was unbelievable; with everyone who attended enjoying themselves thoroughly with the crowd getting involved throughout the game. It was an honour to be involved and raise money for such a great cause in St Clare Hospice. Everyone from Daniel Robinson should be proud that they were able to host such a successful event’. 

Well done to everyone who played on the day, to the volunteer officials Greig, Mark and Mark; our helpers, programme sponsors; The Chefs Table, Mr Unique, Lyn Herbert – Celebrant and Dave Hadley Photography.  We are grateful to the fantastic fundraisers from St. Clare Hospice who came along on the day.  Huge thanks to everyone who went along to see the match – we were amazed by the sheer level of support for the event; we hope that there will be a rematch next year when team DRS will of course be going for glory!

Great news , well done to all concerned. I only wished the game had been more widely published as we would have loved to be there.
