Vicarage Farm Youth FC held a fund raising Under 9's, 7 a side football tournament in aid of local girl Niamh Curry at the Old Grammarians Sports Field. Twenty teams participated in this worthwhile cause with everybody seeming to enjoy their day. More importantly a substantial sum was raised for Niamh Curry's specialised therapy. “My name is Niamh and I am 5 years old.
In September 2011, I was devastated to find out my neuroblastoma had come back.
Neuroblastoma is a very aggressive type of cancer that mainly affects babies and young children like me.“
Brave Niamh has already endured many, many different cancer treatments in the UK — but her best chance of beating this awful cancer lies in America. However, this potentially life-saving treatment is likely to cost in the region of £450,000 ! Niamh’s mum and dad hope that she can start her specialised therapy in America early this year and so Niamh’s friends and family aim to raise as much money as possible for this life-saving treatment.
A big thanks to Mark Robinson and his team for setting this one up. A charity ball hosted at the Park Hotel. IMG were delighted to attend and make a contribution to Action Medical and Marks' efforts. Mark is hoping to raise further funds for Action Medical Research by cycling to London. Then his next fund raiser will be to cycle across France. Good luck from all at IMG Photography.
