A recent walking football tournament, in aid of East Sussex Age UK, has raised more than £13,000 for the charity.
The event, sponsored by CPJ Field — one of the South East’s family funeral directors — was part of the summer fair in Eastbourne which also included more than 50 stalls, live music and a variety of performing arts. The aim of the fun-filled day was to raise money for the charity locally and to increase awareness of the charity’s work, on a larger scale.
Bill Scott, regional operating partner at CPJ Field, commented, “We are extremely proud to support Age UK and are delighted to see how much was raised at this brilliant fundraising event. It was an incredible experience to be the lead sponsors of the walking football tournament, and we’d like to thank all those that showed their support for this great cause.”
