A charity football game has taken place in memory of Christopher Seymour.

The 'Christopher Seymour Memorial Cup' took place on Saturday, August 5, at Poweleague Slough and was a "huge success" as attendees helped raise over £10k for Alexander Devine Children's Hospice.

This year saw over 200 people participate, forming 14 football teams, with individuals coming from Luton and Fleet.

The event was rounded off with a match between Britwell FC and Ruff Ryders.

On the day there was a host of food, drink and entertainment alongside the football.

The tournament started in 2015 when Christopher, 21, from Windsor, died after a tragic fall from a bridge on the M4.

Fundraiser organiser George Torpey, said: "I wanted to create something that we could build and contribute to grow his legacy.

"He loved football so a football tournament made the most sense."

After searching for a charity to support, Alexander Devine Children's Hospice stood out to the group, and in the first year of the event, £1,500 was raised for charity.

George added: "Since then, we have run five tournaments and this year will be the sixth, raising close to £30k for the Hospice so far."

Christopher would be turning 30 this year, making the event a landmark in the celebration of his life.

"It's amazing to see so many people come together for Chris and raise money for a fantastic cause," said George.

George added that this year the event is more important than ever to him as he also lost his partner Izzy to cancer in March.

"A huge thanks to everyone who has made this event possible."
