A charity football tournament was held in Cravells Road, Harpenden on Saturday, August 4 to raise money for Child Bereavement UK.

The tournament was started by Freddie Warner, 26, in memory of his dad.

Freddie said: “I lost my dad when I was 17 and Child Bereavement UK is a brilliant charity that helped me at a difficult time. It’s a charity for people who have lost loved ones at any age, young or old. I was really happy with the work that I’ve seen they’ve done for other people.

“For the last five or six years I’ve been running a charity football tournament with my owl football manager, because I used to play for Harpenden Old Boys.”

Five teams took part in the tournament, including local teams from Harpenden, Freddie’s old university team and his current team in London. There will also be a raffle and a barbecue, and families are encouraged to attend.

After the tournament there was a trophy ceremony and drinks at The Engineer pub in St John’s Road.

Freddie said: “Last year we raised £1,500 for the charity. It’s a great laugh. It’s a really great day and I really do enjoy organising it.”
