TEAM SEMENTA was created when my Mum sadly passed away in 2012.
My Mum and family were always proud of my charity work so I wanted to do something in her memory. The plan was 5 football games and to raise £500 for Macmillan by getting old team mates and friends together.
129 games later, over £31,000 raised and over 600 players involved, the games are going from strength to strength. My aim is to raise as much for charity as possible. I have supported numerous charities including, Macmillan, Sue Ryder, Young People’s Counselling Service, Cancer Research, Clic Sargent, Mind, Anna’s Hope, Boxing Futures, East Anglian Childrens Hospital, Teenage Cancer Trust, Facet, Make A Wish Foundation and more.
I have been lucky enough to be a Pride Of Britain regional finalist in 2018 and winner of the Pride In Peterborough award in 2019. I never do charity work for recognition but these nominations have helped me raise the profile of the games.
If anyone would like to get involved or sponsor a game, please let me know.
Thanks for reading.
