Tom said: "In September 2017 my dad passed away following a battle with cancer.

"So each year I'm aiming to do a charity football tournament to raise money for the Big C cancer charity.

"I did one last year and raised over £1,000, I also did a charity cycle ride and raised over £5,000 for the Big C too."

The tournament will take place on Saturday, July 27 from midday to 5pm at Stracey Park in Rackheath, and there will be a barbecue and drinks for sale.
