Tigers score £168 for hospice

When members of Tigers Juniors FC came together on Saturday (July 15), they had one goal in mind and that was helping patients and their families when they need it the most.

And the future is looking bright for England's future penalty takers as the young soccer stars fired ball after ball into the net during a penalty shootout at Bretons Farm in Hornchurch and raised £168 for Saint Francis Hospice.  

Tony Atkinson, a coach for the Tigers Yellows under 7s, organised the event after he heard one of the parents from the club was taking on the 100-mile Prudential Ride London - Surrey challenge with her colleague for the charity.

"We'd like to say a huge thank you to all the parents and children who came along to support the penalty shootout and made it such a success," said Anita McCarthy, PR and Communications Executive at Saint Francis Hospice.

"This year Tigers Juniors FC celebrates 30 years of inspiring young people to enjoy the beautiful game and develop great skills but it is also a club with a big heart which reaches out to help its community whenever it can." 

This is the latest donation from the club, which has already raised £3,230 since 2010.
