On Saturday 14th September, the annual St George’s University Students vs Legends Football Match took place, raising money for a charity very close to home – Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).
This year’s match had a particular resonance as it took place in memory of St George’s student Paramedic and footballer, Olly King, who suddenly and so tragically passed away in April this year.
We raised a massive £343 for CRY purely from donations on the day of the game. Spectators paid £1 to watch the match and badges, wrist bands and stickers, amongst other merchandise, were also on sale from a brilliant CRY representative, Carl. Everything we raised and continue to raise is going towards getting a mobile cardiac screening unit to Olly’s home town of Torquay.
