Humphrey's Kick About is all about getting together, having fun and helping children whose lives have been turned upside down by disease, hunger, poverty or disaster. The money we raise will help children everywhere grow up happy, healthy and able to play. Just like children should......And what's more, every £1 we raise will be matched by the UK government, doubling the difference you make to children lives.
So what are you waiting for? GAME ON!!
It's fun and you're doing it for a good cause, so just come along have a laugh and kick a ball about.
All matches will be played as a friendly kick about only. Each game will be played as 10 minutes each way and will continue on a flexible rotation basis. There will be 2 adults on each of the pitches to assist with the games. Teams will be selected by their age group and will teams will be mixed boys and girls. The aim is to have current school years 7 & 6 play 9 aside, years 5, 4 & 3 play 7 aside and years 2, 1 & reception play 5 aside. Everyone to wear their favourite football kit.
Let me tell you a my story and how Humphrey's Kick About was born....
I am 8 years old and football mad! About 6 weeks ago my mum, 2 brothers and I had a fire in our house and we lost all of our belongings and for the next 6/8 months our home. We were very lucky that no one was hurt and everything can be replaced. The people around us in our community have been really kind and I said that i wanted to pay some kindness forward. Then I watched an advert for Soccer Aid and it really made me sad to see children who are living and working on dumps or on the streets with no families and it’s really not safe, not all children can go to school in these countries and to see the children have no where to play or be with their friends and learn how to just be children really upset me so I knew I wanted to do something to help raise money for Soccer Aid (£500 will build a safe playground space to play football or just ‘hang out’ that’s my goal) Humphrey's Kick About is open to all ages from reception to year 7 and boys and girls will play alongside each other. Tickets are £5 per player and included in this will be a burger, hot dog or a vegetarian alternative, a bottle of water and a medal for taking part.
Spectators are free to the event and the BBQ will also be open for spectators to purchase food and money raised will go to Soccer Aid for Unicef. The venue also have a bar that will be open for refreshments. There will also be a raffle on the day and a just giving page is also open for anyone who would like to donate direct to the charity - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/humphreyskickaboutforsocceraid
