Special thanks are due from all of us to Tony Hassan, who has organised a charity football fun day in Islington on Sunday 18th June, in support of of Narcolepsy UK and Suicide Awareness (see here for more details). Tony is a former manager of Hawks Athletic FC, based at Market Road in Islington, and has won the support of former player Anthony Wordsworth, the Southend United midfielder, who has donated a signed shirt that will be one of the raffle prizes on the day. Not only that, Tony has managed to secure a signed shirt from Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere, as well as a signed play-off shirt from Millwall, a signed and framed Arsenal shirt and other great prizes for the raffle.
"The thing we want to achieve more than anything is to raise awareness for both charities," says Tony. The fun day takes place at Market Road, starting at 1pm on Sunday, with football matches, the raffle and fun games for the whole family going on until 5pm.
Well done, Tony! We hope the day goes well.
