Redditch footballers pitch in to help orphans

Redditch football tournament for orphans


Dozens of footballers have taken part in a fundraising tournament to support orphan care around the world. They raised over £1,600, which will go on to care for orphans in places like Palestine, Pakistan and The Gambia through our OrphanKind programme.


The ‘Cup of Champions’ 6-a-side tournament took place in Redditch on Sunday 22nd May, with teams from Birmingham, Coventry, Stoke, London and Loughborough displaying their skills on the pitch.


Jameel Hussain and Qasim Hafiz’s team ‘Incredibles’ took the trophy, beating the Penny Appeal ‘#TeamOrange’ players 2-0 in the final.


Haroon Mota, Midlands Fundraising Manager for Penny Appeal, said: “Football and fundraising are fantastic ways to unite people and it was wonderful to see so many coming together to help orphans and enjoy a bit of friendly competition.


You can care for an orphan for just 50p a day – call 03000 11 11 11 to start your sponsorship now.

#TeamOrange run the miles to make the smiles

Haroon in the Great Birmingham 10k


Runners, joggers and walkers put their best feet forward in the Great Birmingham 10k earlier this month, raising over £5,000 to care for and educate orphans and needy children.


They took on the challenge for Smile Relief – our month of activity to create smiles by caring for orphans and opening new schools.


“It was a fantastic day, full of energy and determination,” said Haroon Mota, Midlands Fundraising Manager. “The team did exceptionally well to walk, jog and run the 10km distance, a great achievement, especially for the majority who were participating in a race for the first time.”


If you want to do something active to raise money, sign up to join #TeamOrange and we’ll keep you up-to-date about future challenges. You can also take action by sponsoring an orphan for just 50p a day – call 03000 11 11 11 to start transforming a life now.

There were all sorts of events and activities taking place, from the nationwide Sami Yusuf tour and 10k of Kindness in Birmingham, to #TeamOrange fun days, cakes sales, car washes and collections.


Everyone joined together to spread smiles, resulting in donations and commitments to set up several new schools and start many orphan sponsorships.


All this means that children will get the care, education and love they need to thrive.
