Event to net appeal cash

A five-a-side football tournament and family fun day held to boost funds for a year-long appeal will take place this weekend.

Around 60 teams from across Suffolk will be in action at AFC Sudbury’s MEL Group Stadium on Saturday.

The tournament is running alongside a family fun day, featuring a bouncy castle, sumo wrestling and face painting.

Money raised from the event, which starts at 10am, will go to the Sudbury Resource Centre, which provides support for adults with learning difficulties.

The overall winner of the tournament will take on an AFC Sudbury XI in a bonus play-off match.
