Domestic Appliances in Sudbury hands over £4,800 to Cancer Research UK after successful charity football tournament
A cheque for £4,800 has been presented to a cancer charity, following the success of a memorial football tournament in Sudbury earlier this year.
The money was raised during the charity event at the AFC Sudbury grounds in June, which featured a four-team competition and 50 fete stalls, and drew hundreds of visitors.
It was organised by Lee Bacon, manager of the family-owned Domestic Appliances in Cross Street, who has run the fundraiser annually for the last four years, as a tribute to his uncle, Terry Bacon, who died from cancer in 2016.
To date, the four events have raised more than £13,000 for the benefit of Cancer Research UK.
The cheque was handed over at the Cancer Research shop in Market Hill on Monday.
Lee told the Free Press: “It was very hard work this year, so it’s a really nice amount of money to raise, and hopefully it makes a difference. If it helps just one person, that would be brilliant.”
