On June 29, the Zam Challenge returns for its second annual instalment! Burford School will host our six-team, 5-a-side football tournament which promises to be even more intense than last year. Visit our JustGiving page now to make a donation, post a message of support for your team, and help us change lives in Zambia!
In the 2017 competition, Burford School staff narrowly triumphed over three rival teams to take away the first-ever trophy. This year, the total number of teams has increased to six - with a second alumni squad and a team representing Wenn Townsend Chartered Accountants added into the mix.
As before, the official Cecily's Fund team is captained by Simon Isherwood who has formed a new squad with "a mix of youth and experience". The other returning teams are reigning champions Burford staff, the original alumni, and an all-new Burford School Year 12 team. There are four special awards for top goalscorer, top goalkeeper, best teamwork, and of course Man of the Match - which is generously sponsored by Wenn Townsend.
The Cecily's Fund team needs your support! Visit our JustGiving page today to make a donation, then post a message for our team. They were top goalscorers in 2017, and would love nothing more than to go all the way this year!
We'll be sharing all the action from all the matches online, so be sure to keep an eye on the #ZamChallenge18 hashtag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We'll also be publishing a post-tournament report here on our website.
It takes just a few clicks to make your Zam Challenge donation, but your support will make a real difference in the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children in Zambia. Just £5 is enough to help support our feeding programme at BISO Community School, while £15 helps us support a community savings group. For every £50 we raise, we can support a child at school for a year. So please - donate today, help us make a difference, and cheer on the Cecily's Fund team!
