‘5 in 5’ to host series of fundraising events

The 5 in 5 charity has organised a weekend fundraiser with proceeds set to be donated to the Cancer Relief Centre and the Gibraltar Cardiac Association.

The events are aimed at bringing people together to support them as they lead up to their main event of five half iron mans in five days in May.

The first event is a 5 a-side football tournament organised by the GFA which will take place at Victoria Stadium on Saturday, May 13.

“It's open to everyone,” said Charles Harrison from 5 in 5.

Mr Harrison added everyone from companies, to groups of friends, are more than welcome to join in any of the teams or even put a team together.

Each team will have a maximum of 10 players, with £100 donated per team.

Mr Harrison expects the event will see three matches take place at the same time.

“There are also going to be jumping castles, shoot the goal with some of the GFA keepers where you pay to have a shot at getting a goal past them,” he said.

“I think they're doing some obstacle course for younger kids. Then we are going have food and music.”
