Andy Hemington and his team have been doing brilliant work over the past few months organising charity football matches in aid of Dreamflight. Three matches are now complete, the first at Watford Football enjoyed celebrity guest players such as Luther Blissett, Ricky Villa, Paul Merson, Micky Hazard, Glen Little and Nicky Shorey, phew what a line-up!
The second game was hosted by Colchester United, the third by Norwich City and Andy has further matches planned over the summer.
Andy’s business is selling autographs and our Patron Ian Poulter joked with him at a recent golf event ‘make sure you donate a bit to Dreamflight’! When Andy saw what Dreamflight provides he decided not only to continue donating sales of all items signed by Ian but to also choose us as one of his charities this year, thank you, Andy!
He’s set a fantastic fundraising target of £7,000 for 2015 and has pledged £3,550 to Dreamflight, which will pay for a child to join us on the trip this October, we’re so grateful.
