Matching up sport and a good cause

Have your say

Sports teams on the Fylde coast are being called on to help a good cause.

Macmillan Cancer Support has launched its new fund-raising campaign urging people to hold a match, in any sport, to boost its fund-raising efforts.

Teams pick the date, venue and sport – they just have to register the event with Macmillan. They could ask people to pay to play, sell half-time refreshments, hold a raffle or get sponsored to play in fancy dress.

Fiona Dundas, fund-raising manager for Macmillan, said: “We would love groups from Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre to register to hold a Match for Macmillan. It can be any sort of match – football, rugby, tennis, cricket, darts, even knitting.”
