Entry to the event is free.

A fun day will take place on Sunday 23rd September 2018 to raise funds for Alfie Taylor of South Moor, Stanley.

Alfie is 6 years old and was first diagnosed with acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia on 23rd April 2016.  Since this time Alfie has gone through so much and is currently undergoing treatment at the RVI Newcastle.

The money raised from the event will be used to make a real difference to Alfie’s life by helping to send him on a holiday of a lifetime to Florida.

The event offers a whole host of activities for all the family including inflatables, kids rides, raffles and games, guest DJ, emergency vehicles, food and refreshments, including a licensed bar. There will also be an over 18’s five a side football tournament.

The event has been organised by a group of five students studying an NVQ level 2 in Event Planning which is delivered by community learning provider Stanley Events.   The course involves researching event ideas, event planning, raising funds and allocation of budgets, with the final part being to run an event. The group of five students: Toni Colligan, Tina Colligan, Melissa Wombwell, Daniel Holmes and Jenny Northey are very much looking forward to the event which is being held for such a worthy cause.  Daniel Holmes, said: “We are all hoping the event turns out to be a big success. It’s something that the Stanley community can all get behind and this will help to make a difference to someone’s life.”

Location: Stanley Community Football Centre off Tyne Road, Stanley, DH9 6PZ
