City of Peterborough Hockey Club host a SWAN (Syndrome Without A Name) Charity Day at Bretton Gate tomorrow (July 9).

City player Nathan Foad organises the day as a family friend, Tommy James, suffers from the condition.

The ‘Tommy James Trophy’ will be awarded to the competition winners.

Only four teams entered last year, but more than £600 was raised.

More teams have already committed this season so a bigger amount is expected to be raised.

Foad said: “It was a really successful day last year, but hopefully with more teams this year, and people knowing what to expect, we can have even more fun and raise money to help SWAN at the same time”.

Its £10 per person to play in a mixed hockey format and players are expected to be there at 11:30am for a noon start.

Matches will last 20 minutes.

Cake stalls, a bar, a raffle, a BBQ and inflatables for children and adults alike will all be on offer.
