As many of you know, the staff at Jointing Tech organise a charity football match every year. This year’s match is on 1st July at the Worthing Football Club and will raise money for the Connor Saunders Foundation.
For those of you that don’t know, this is Connor’s story and a link to the Just Giving page.
Connor passed away aged only 19. At 16, unbeknown to his parents, he signed the donation register, an act that ultimately saved the lives of five transplant patients. This selfless act alone embodies the kind, gentle and brave young man Connor was.
Since his passing, Connor’s family and friends have worked tirelessly to raise funds to buy and distribute defibrillators to schools, football clubs and businesses across the area as well as providing football coaching for children with learning difficulties; we are raising as much money as possible for the community whilst keeping Connor’s memory and spirit alive.
The Foundation, set up in Connor’s name, is focused on giving back to the community and highlighting your own actions, how one moment in time can change your life, and those around you, forever. This spotlight on considering your actions aims to carry on his legacy and hopefully one day may even save a young life.
Please come along and support us. It will be free entry, food and drink will be available, plus there will be some activities for the kids to keep them occupied!!
We thank you for any donations made.
