A local life changing kick around is set to raise funds for a popular North East charity this week, whilst celebrating its 30th birthday.
The Xercise4Less charity cup, which will see two Visualsoft teams battle it out with 22 other businesses from around the region, has been organised by the national gym chains Stockton North gym. What started out as a little idea has drawn over 20 teams from all across the region including local restaurants, the local homeless football club and tech businesses. Even a local MP and England CP International will be pulling on their boots for the competition. Each team has been asked to provide a minimum of £20 sponsorship which will help provide funds for the Butterwick Hospice.
Butterwick Hospice Care offers care to children and adults suffering life limiting illnesses. All services are provided free of charge. Thank you for your support. Butterwick Hospice Care incorporates Butterwick Hospice Stockton, Butterwick House and Butterwick Hospice Bishop Auckland.
David Duke, who will be heading up one of the VS teams put forward said “As a keen footballer its always a huge pleasure to be involved in these events, especially as we’ll be raising money for a very worthy cause while doing so. The whole team at VS is really geared up for the tournament on Saturday – it looks like we’re up against some impressive teams so we best get the practice in! ”
The main prize is a Butterwick Hospice Vest Signed by England internationals including Wayne Rooney, Jack Wilshire, Raheem Sterling and others. The Vest has been donated my England CP International Matt Crossen who also works at Xercise4Less. Tickets can be purchased from Xercise4Less Stockton North, Tesco Extra, Durham Road or by contacting the Butterwick Hospice.
