I am sending CRY a cheque for £300 raised at our Charity Football Match in memory of Kevin Sayer, who was my son Colin’s best friend. Kevin was aged 18 when he died suddenly in his sleep, due to Restrictive Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.
The match was also in memory of Matt Green, who died aged 19 from a form of cancer. The two teams taking part in the match were made up of Kevin and Matt’s friends.
They were both very keen footballers, so we have a match every year on August Bank Holiday Sunday, and split the money raised between CRY and the Royal Marsden Hospital where Matt was being treated.
The Captains for the sides were Colin Forder for Kevin’s team, and Gary Summons for Matt’s team.
We had a beautiful day with lots of people watching, and after the match we had a raffle and a buffet. Everyone also enjoyed the opportunity to have a good chat to friends and families of the two lads.
The money being sent to CRY is for the Kevin Sayer Memorial Fund.
Mrs S. Forder
