Estover Fun Day raises £400

On Saturday, Estover Park Youth FC held their second Annual Fun Day at Burrowmoor School.

The day consisted of an international themed football tournament among all youth team players, with the winners and runners-up trophies sponsored by Once Upon A Cake. Also, there was a bouncy castle, face painting, a raffle, hoola hoop competition, penalty shoot out, water drenching in the stocks and food stalls.

The tournament had a close final with Australia losing to Spain on penalties, after a 1-1 draw (aet). In the adult match, the Club Officials beat the Parents 3-2.

Chairman Gary Davis said: “With the rain holding off, the club had a terrific day celebrating how far we have come as a club. The event benefited from our new Funding Raising Sub-Committee, who could ensure that the event was bigger and better than the previous year.

“The club raised over £400, an excellent amount for our club and will help kick off the new season.”

Thanks to the local businesses who contributed to the event, including Wingy from the Ship Public House (catering), Nats Happy Hoppers (Bouncy Castle), Pinks and Glitter Pamper Parties, (face painting). There were also raffle prizes donated by Sainsburys, the Griffin, Tescos, WH Smiths, the Red Lion and Body Balance UK.
