Traditionally Cookham Dean FC's  members join together during the festive season to enjoy a football fun day and raise money for a local charity. This Christmas was no different and this years beneficiaries were Thames Hospice Care in Windsor with the club raising a minimum of £400 for the local Charity.


This year the CDFC hosted an in house tournament which  involved all the players from the Youth section right through to the Seniors, who all paid a match fee to playing the match's and then afterwards supported a festive raffle in the clubhouse.

Club members were invited to donate Prizes to boost the Christmas Draw and those
Prizes  included a pair of Film Premier tickets to see the new Leonardo Di Caprio Kate & Winslet film Revolutionary Road in Leicester Square in January, a £50 Cash prize, a case of Champagne and there were plenty of other prizes on offer too.


Many local people turned out to cheer on the teams at the Alfred Major ground despite the bitterly cold weather and the occasion was hailed as a complete success with fun high on the agenda.


Thames Hospicecare is a palliative care service that provides specialist care for patients with terminal or life-limiting illness. Based at two sites in Windsor and Ascot, it delivers a fully comprehensive range of palliative care services to those who live in East Berkshire, South Buckinghamshire and parts of Middlesex, Surrey and Oxfordshire. This care also provides for the patientsí families and carers.

Martyn Newell from the Cookham Dean Football Club said "We cannot speak highly enough of the service they provide at the Hospice, and I think this is one of the most worthy of all the causes we have chosen to support. The club turned out in force to support this event to make it a success and we all had an enjoyable day."
