Charity Football Match

Article by Jonny May and Cameron Traill

On Friday June 23rd the Year 10’s led by Jonny May and Cameron Traill organised our second charity football match to raise funds for Parkinson’s UK. It was a very successful event and a close, entertaining game of football. The two teams were evenly matched and there were some stand out moments of football - Brayden O’Connor’s first goal shocked the opposition and James O’Connor was quick to equalise, skillfull play from Charlie Kindell in the second half put the green team ahead, then Kian Patel’s impressive penalty kept the white team in the game. The penalty shoot out showed the skill of both goalkeepers, Maitham Hassanali and Ben Westcott, but there could only be one winning team!

We would like to thank everyone who was involved, with particular thanks to Amelie and Lois who ran the refreshments on the day and Aryan, Luke and Joel from Year 12 who officiated the match brilliantly.

Special thanks to Mr O’Dowd who supported us every step of the way and thank you to all members of the St Clement Danes community who came to watch the match and contributed to such a good cause.

Our Just Giving link will be open for a little bit longer if you would like to contribute. We are really proud that we have currently raised £1,180 to support the excellent work of the charity Parkinson’s UK.
