A football club wishes to “bring the teams together” by organizing a 24-hour “football-athon”.
Littleport Rangers FC will see their youth and adult teams take part in a five-a-side match, which aims to go on for 24 hours without stopping.
“For the past two years, the football club has been organizing events individually,” said organizer Amy Beck.
“We were trying to think of a fundraiser that would be nice to bring the club together and do an event to raise funds.”
Around 100-150 players from all teams including Under-8s, Under-13s, girls and men are due to play in the marathon game which will start at 9am on May 21.
It aims to raise funds for the club and the learning support charity, Branching Out.
Camping, music and other activities will also take place during the event at the Littleport Leisure Centre, along with end of season prizes.
“The goal was to be a challenge, so I think it should bring the teams together,” Amy added.
“We can raise valuable funds so that in the long term we can keep the club accessible to everyone.”
