Calum Speirs Memorial Football Tournament: 10th Year Anniversary

« Return to News

8th Nov 2017

On Sunday the 5th of November the Brandane Bulls, with support from the Help Project, hosted a fantastic football tournament in memory of Calum Speirs, commemorating 10 years since Calum lost his battle to cancer at the age of 12.

Following a gloriously sunny day with a great turnout from the local community, Caroline Speirs wrote:
“Thank you so much to The Help Project and Brandane Bulls for organising today’s football tournament. There were over 90 players today split into 3 age groups.
It was wonderful to see all the players out in the fresh air having good fun playing football.
If you want the honest truth today felt quite hard. It was the 10th Anniversary Football Tournament, and I looked at lots of the wee faces and thought many of them hadn’t been born when we lost Calum, they didn’t know Calum. However by playing football in his memory today they were learning about him and the legacy he has left behind to help others who are suffering from cancer.
Calum and Jenna loved nothing more than having our back garden full of friends and playing football.
So thank you again to everyone who took part and organised today, it means so much to Duncan, Jenna and I”
.
It certainly was a 5th of November to remember.
