Cornwall County Football Association to support CLIC Sargent

The Cornwall County Football Association (CCFA) has chosen CLIC Sargent as the charity to benefit from this year's Durning Lawrence Charity Cup competition.

Last year’s Cornwall Charity Cup Competition winners, Callington Town FC, with their winner’s trophy.

The Durning Lawrence Charity Cup began when the late Sir Edward Durning Lawrence, presented a cup to Truro AFC for charitable purposes.

The cup was later handed to the Cornwall County Football Association to organise an annual competition for charity. 

This season 16 clubs across Cornwall will compete for the Charity Cup whilst raising vital funds for children and young people with cancer, and their families.

Cornwall FA Chief Executive, Dawn Aberdeen said: “The Charity Cup is our opportunity to support wonderful organisations and by raising the profile of the competition we hope to raise as much money as possible for them.

"The Cornwall County Football Association is thrilled to be able to contribute through its clubs and volunteers as well as a company donation at the cup final in May 2015.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Georgina Reed said: “We are thrilled that the CCFA has chosen CLIC Sargent to benefit from its Charity Cup Competition this season.

"It is great to be working with a county organisation with a great reputation. The money raised for CLIC Sargent from the Charity Cup Competition this season will make a huge difference to the lives of children and young people with cancer. That, we are truly grateful for.”
