Bristol walking football charity tournament

Bristol United Walking Football Club held a Charity Tournament on December 15 at Horfield Leisure Centre. The tournament was a great success with a total of 28 players, in four teams, taking part.
To minimise contact and stay within Covid guidelines two separate pitches at Horfield were used and the games were non-contact, refereed by two very experienced refs. The final worthy winners were the Purple Team and Orange were runners up.
A total of £300 each was donated to two charities - North Bristol Foodbank and Refresh Bedminster.
Keith Gwilym said: “We are very grateful to the Leisure Centre for providing the pitches free of charge which has allowed us to donate the fees to the charities.”
Afterwards there was a socially distanced outdoor social with mince pies and a drop of mulled wine to try to bring a bit of normality to the occasion.
