Five-a-side football tournament raises money for charity

Football Tournament 1

A charity five-a-side football tournament hosted by Crewe Neighbourhood Policing Team has raised £500 for Cancer Research UK.

The tournament was held in aid of International Men′s Day on Saturday 17 November at Manchester Metropolitan University′s campus in Crewe.

Eight teams took part, representing the local community, Cheshire Constabulary, North West Ambulance Service, Manchester Metropolitan University and Wulvern Housing.

The overall winners were KFC, a team from the local Polish community, who defeated the Manchester Metropolitan University team in the final.

PC Warren Davidson of Crewe Neighbourhood Policing Unit was responsible for organising the event.

He said: "We would like to say a big thank you to Gareth Smith from the Manchester Metropolitan University for providing all the facilities and Rob Allen, Director of Partnerships at Wulvern Housing, who have kindly offered to match all the money raised, pound-for-pound.

"Due to the success of this event and for the assistance provided by the Manchester Metropolitan University, I am hopeful that another tournament can be arranged for next year which will hopefully raise even more money for local charities."
