Charity football match to support burns victims

MOSSLEY’S Seel Park will be the scene of a charity football match to help raise funds to support children who suffer burn injuries and their families.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue FC will play The Bohemians on Sunday, April 23 in aid of the Manchester Children’s Burns Camp and Being Foundation.

And there will be much more on offer than the skills on the pitch, which start at 2pm.

For emergency vehicles will be on site for people to have a look around, along with a bouncy castle, a barbecue put on by local butcher, face painters and some great raffle prizes.

Those including a 1980s Mossley AFC shirt and a family pass to tour Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.

Being Foundation began from a group of Burns Camp – a rehabilitative programme for children with burn injuries and problem scarring requiring plastic surgery – volunteers who wanted to start fundraising to pay for a winter Burns Camp.

They organised a bike ride from London to Paris with a French pharmaceutical company, which raised about £50,000, paying for the first ever Winter Burns Camp in February.

The group of young people that attended Winter Burns Camp now want to raise money to allow other young people with burns injuries to benefit from the next Winter Burns Camp in 2025.

And this football match is a supporting event to our main event in September which will be to paddle the Caledonian Canal on a three or four day excursion.
