Football Match for Heroes
In memory of Tom Wroe and Gareth Thursby
This game on 29th April 2018 is to help raise money to fund a memorial bench with Gareth and Tom’s names on it. As both soldiers served in The Yorkshire Regiment (1 DWR) we are looking for support from any ex-Dukes that want to come and cheer on the teams playing or even put a strip on if you think you still have what it takes.
On the day we will hold a raffle. So again if you could donate prizes, that would be fantastic. The organisers will also be setting up a fund raising page so if you want to donate you can.
We will be looking to host 4 teams; Armed forces, Ex pro’s, Celebrities and Ossett Albion Vets.
First game will be
Ossett Albion Vets v Celebrities 12:00 Kick Off
Followed by the big one Army/ex army v Ex Professional Footballers with a 15:00 Kick off
Straight after the big game the auction will commence 17:30
