Sir Trevor Brooking, Tony Gale, and Mark Ward have supported a football game organised by construction business LMAC Group and broker DNA Insurance for the advantage of children’s charity Spread a Smile.
The West Ham legends were in attendance at the seven-a-side football tournament that was held at Billericay Town F.C. in Essex last month to cheer on the 19 contributing teams. Masterminded by LMAC Group’s Lee McDowell and DNA Insurance director Danny Imray, the event raised £20,224.
“We dedicated a hospital visit at St Mary’s Hospital to Lee, Danny, and all those who took part in and organised the tournament,” said Spread a Smile chief manager Lucy Jackson, whose camp helps bring joy and hope to seriously ill children in hospitals and hospices through in-person and actual visits.
“Collectively they raised an incredible amount of money for us, which will help fund our work locally and across the UK, funding seriously ill children in hospital. We can’t thank Lee, Danny, and everyone involved enough. It’s only with the help of our supporters organizing events, introducing us to their peers, and helping spread the word of our work that we can begin again to spread smiles far and wide.”
