MORE than £1,400 has been raised for charity thanks to a five-hour football match.

The game was organised by Graham Turner in memory of his mum who died of bone cancer a year ago.

The lengthy five-a-side match raised money for Marie Curie Cancer Care and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Around 35 people took part in the game which was held at Goals in Portsmouth, off Tangier Road.

Graham, 37, from Park Gate, Fareham, said it was hard work.

‘It took me about three days to recover. I looked like an old man walking around,’ he said.

‘But it was for two worthy charities.

‘It’s a good effort for a few hours’ work. I was chuffed.

‘The whole day was really good.’

Now Graham is planning another fundraiser for the same time next year.
