Bring your families down for a picnic on the pitch today.
That is the call from the organisers of a charity fun day and football match at Deal Town Football Club.
The event is in aid of Demelza and will be held at the Charles Ground in St Leonard’s Road from 11am with kick off at 1pm.
Arron Skirrow, from Frames 4 You and Ideal Fencing has organised the event.
He said: “I met a customer once and they had a little boy who was being looked after by Demelza.
“We were already planning on climbing the Three Peaks at the time and we decided to support them.”
The event has the backing of Nigel May, Deal’s Demelza Ambassador who is calling for as many people to support the event as possible.
As well as enjoying a picnic on the pitch the headline event will be the match between Demelza Allstars and Deal Town 11, a selection of local players. Kick off is at 1pm, but the gates open at 11am.
There will be a crossbar challenge with a cash prize, and under 10s 5-a-side game, a girls’ pageant for youngsters aged 12 and under.
Both children and adults can work off their picnic treats on bouncy castles for kids and grown-ups.
There will be raffles and a children’s tombola, face painting, a cottage kitchen and the bar will be open selling alcoholic and soft drinks.
Demelza will have a craft stall at the event, and there will be people on hand to talk about the work the charity does.
Admission is free.
