A sports based fun day at the Crooked Billet pub in Iver will raise money for a mental health charity that has helped more than 10,000 people recover through sporting activity.

The pub in Uxbridge Road has teamed up with Active Slough and Get Sports Inspired to stage the event on Saturday, April 13.

The money raised will go to Sports in Mind - the Berkshire based charity set up by Neil Harris.

Next week will be quite a fundraising week for the charity as Thames Valley Youth Football Club under-7s coach Dwayne McKenzie and former player Charlie Merrett are doing a 130 mile sponsored walk from Derbyshire.

Thames Valley Youth have currently raised over £600 for the charity through parents and a series of confidence building football sessions which have been led by club and football development officer Dwayne.

He said: “The club’s motto is every child must play. A lot of the children that participate aren’t from our club, they just want to play football and over the last few months it’s been a joy to see the confidence in them build. “

The coaches will complete the final part of their long journey on April 13 and plan to attend the fun day at the Crooked Billet with some of their players.

The day will include a range of different sports as well as activities for the whole family starting from 12.30pm.
