It’s North vs South in a battle to find out which end of the country has the most accomplished academic athletes! Basically it’s #SoccerAid but better, because it’s exclusively for the education community.

This is the first ever #EduFootyAid event but we hope it will become a much anticipated annual fixture. It has been set up by the Striker Boy campaign which is being run in memory of former primary school teacher Jonny Zucker, who sadly took his own life in 2016. We hope to raise £2,000 through the event, which will be donated to Mind, the country’s leading mental health charity.

It promises to be a great family day out with fairground stalls, delicious refreshments, raffles and general merriment throughout.  We’d love you to be a part of this joyful event which is raising money for an important cause.
