It’s a walkover! Teams raise Hospice funds
The club, based at the Xcel Leisure Complex, Walton, has around 250 members – men and women – who take part in this growing sport in sessions held throughout the week.
Both Chelsea FC Foundation and Fulham FC Foundation support the walking football club by taking sessions each week.
Keith Harris, who helps run the club, said: “We raised £533.55 for the Hospice at our annual Christmas party last month.
Players and families come from all over the Princess Alice Hospice care area – and a number have personal experience of the work done both at the Hospice and within the community.”
For those club members whose lives are affected by dementia, there are weekly reminiscence sessions followed by a game of walking football – an initiative supported by Fulham FC Foundation.
Clare Petrie, from the Hospice Supporter Care team, said: “The support of such a popular and growing local organisation is particularly good news for the Hospice; it helps spread the word about our commitment to excellent end of life care both here and in people’s homes.
We’re very pleased to accept the donation and wish the teams even more success in the future.”
