#KickCancerCup strikes again!

02 December 2019

On 26th September 2019 the 5th annual #KickCancerCup charity football match took place to raise money for Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, Oncology Day Unit and Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.

Both charities are very close to the hearts of the Kick Cancer Cup Team as their Captain, Samantha Isaacson, who at 25 years old was diagnosed with advanced bowel cancel in March 2015. Having played football for longer than she can remember and coaching both girls and women locally, Sam is well-known within women’s football in Cambridgeshire. 

Hearing the words ‘You have Cancer’ Samantha decided to fight back and Kick Cancer and raise money to support the lifesaving treatment that the team at the Oncology Unit provide to people battling against cancer. In 2018 Sam decided to also raise funds for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and invited us to be part of the event. The 2018 match was a huge success and raised £2500 for each charity. However, the 2019 match surpassed all expectations and raised an incredible £8100 for each charity!!

 Bec Beattie, Community Fundraiser said, ‘We are so grateful to Sam and everyone involved in bringing together the #KickCancerCup. This is a wonderful event for the whole community to enjoy and at the same tome raises a phenomenal amount of money for charity. Thank you so much to Sam, the whole #KickCancerCup team, spectators and sponsors!’
