How you can help change lives through football Check out how people are raising money for Street League all over the UK. Staff at Getty Images in north London organised and competed in a fundraising football match. Two 11-a-side teams represented England and the Rest of the World, raising over £260 for Street League. England triumphed 6-3 and celebrated accordingly when presented with the trophy. Participants and spectators were asked to make a contribution on the day, with the total amount raised matched by Getty Images. Congratulations also go out to 18-year-old Joel Hopkins, from Aylesbury, who raised £770 for Street League after completing the ‘Three Peaks Challenge’. Passionate about football and inspired by the work of Street League, Joel chose to support the charity because of his own experiences in sport, and football in particular. Starting university this year, Joel said: “I wanted to raise money for Street League because I feel I can relate to the young people they work with and doing something like this has helped with my university application. Football has given me some great experiences and opportunities, and what Street League does with young people really appealed to me.” Joel finished the 26-mile challenge in the 24-hour time limit, climbing over 10,000ft across the three mountains. Although it was a gruelling challenge, Joel said he was pleased to have raised so much money. “It was a fantastic experience although really hard going at times! I hope the money we have raised will help Street League continue with their great work.” To find out how people have been fundraising for Street League click here, or contact Herbert Kandeh on [email protected] 07943 309922.
