George V Playing Field
By Gaynor Heath - 15th May 2020 6:00am
Well....Covid-19 hasn't only postponed the end of the football season for Premiership and League clubs....it has also seen the annual "George Heath Memorial Trophy" having to be put back until it is safe for us to host the event.
The event was originally scheduled to take place this coming Saturday (16th May). For safety reasons the decision was taken at the start of lockdown to postpone the event (and review that decision regularly to see when we might be able to host it). Unfortunately, at the moment it is looking increasing likely that we won't be able to host the event in the foreseeable future (in which case, we might have the trophy engraved with the winner for 2020 being declared as "Covid-19" ....although I'm sure some of the guys who usually enter amusingly topical named teams could come up with something!
Of course, sadly, the lack of the event will impact on our fundraising and our ability to support local individual and organisations...so we look forward to seeing even more of you at our future events to try to "top up" the pot!
As always, you can check out what we have been able to do with the funds generated in the four years since George died on our website http://thegeorgeheathfoundation.org.uk/how-we-have-helped/
...and we will of course let you know if / when we are able to host the football!
