Dean Williamson, Chairman of Cheshunt FC, explained to us why this day is important to the Ambers- and it's about far more than just football.

"A particular focus of mine over the last few years has been establishing the club at the heart of the community. I believe a football club plays an important role in the health and social cohesion of the community it serves, and is a great platform to raise awareness of local causes.

Our annual Community Cup tournament has been a huge success in promoting and funding projects and charities in our community.
This year our tournament is in memory of former player John Walton, who sadly passed away in April after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. Today we will be raising money for our local Isabel Hospice Living Well service that runs from St. Joseph's Parish Centre in Waltham Cross.

The Living Well service in Waltham Cross offers of variety of options to support those in our community who are living with serious long term and life limiting conditions from cancer. The money raised today will go towards buying equipment for use in the variety of sessions and courses that are run from the centre. We will be joined today by volunteers from the Isabel Hospice who will be happy to provide more information about the service. It's a fitting cause in memory of John, so please give generously to the donation buckets and enter our 50/50 draw."
