Football charity bid

A 14-year-old schoolboy has organised a five-a-side football tournament in Alfreton to raise cash for Cancer Research UK.

Christopher Thompson made the decision after a relative was stricken by the illness.

Six teams, with players aged between ten and 50, will take part in the games at Alfreton Leisure Centre on Sunday June 22nd.

There will be a craft fair, stalls and face-painting for children.

Booking a stall costs £5.
