Charity football tournament this saturday

Published on Thursday 9 August 2018

The Chris Dowd Memorial Shield football tournament takes place this saturday at Deepings Leisure Centre, kicking off at 9am.

Chris Dowd was both a much-valued Contracts Manager at Burmor Construction and a well-loved family member related to our family-run company, who sadly passed away on Easter Sunday 2018 following a series of heart attacks.

Chris underwent a series of operations and was cared for at Papworth Hospital following his first heart attacks in the summer of 2017.

We are organising this tournament in aid of the British Heart Foundation and in memory of Chris.

12 teams will compete in the tournament which consists of a group stage followed by quarter and semi finals and then the final, with the winner claiming the Chris Dowd Memorial Shield.

Spectators are welcome on the day, and refreshments are available, with a proportion of the takings on the refreshments being donated to the charity.
