Meet Zac, Joe and Mikey
In July 2015, Joe’s brother Sam was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 17. Joe decided to organise a football tournament at his local club, to raise money for Macmillan and bring the community together. They had a raffle and auction alongside the match and had a hugely successful event.
Joe worked with the local football club, his football team and the whole community to get his event going. He also managed to source auction and raffle prizes which he knew his friends would be keen to win.
Joe and his brothers all play football, and so do all their friends. This event worked so brilliantly because they already had contacts and a ready-made audience who would come along to support them.
