The Norfolk Hospice was the grateful beneficiary of an annual veteran’s football tournament held in Terrington St Clements on 24th June.

Almost 40 players, all over the age of 40 who had either previously played for Terrington Tigers or lived in the village took part in the tournament which was organised this year in memory of local man, Eamonn Payne. Each of the players made a donation to the Hospice and spectators were also encouraged to contribute.  

Alongside the tournament was a beer festival which was held at the Wildfowler pub and organised in conjunction with Terrington Community Fund. The beer festival took place over the weekend and on the Sunday the remaining beer was auctioned off in aid of The Norfolk Hospice.

A beautiful memorial trophy was presented to Eamonn’s wife Caroline and family. She said “

It was an amazing effort by everyone who organised it and participated, particularly Andy Bly, the Terrington Tigers and Terrington Community Fund.

 A total of £850 was raised from the two events for the charity.

Lindsey Atkin, Community Fundraising Manager at the Hospice said,

It is always great to see local community groups coming together to support the hospice and was wonderful to be able to meet some of the organisers at the Hospice when they came to present the cheque.
