SO MUCH love was shown for proud monner Mike Hull and for the beautiful game at this year’s Droitwich Against Melanoma (DAM) walking football tournament.
More than £6,500 was raised from the event, putting the overall total for Mike’s legacy mole-mapping machine at £51.000. It means the campaign is within touching distance of the £55,000 target.
The mole-mapping machine which would be based at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital so it could be used by people right across the Midlands.
Mike lost his brave nine-year battle with melanoma on March 19 and was told if his melanoma had been caught earlier his outcome might have been very different.
At the event itself, the sun shone down as the teams battled it out with The Nearly Men running out winners at the St Peter’s Cricket Pitch where the competition was held.
As well as the football, there was a family fun day with tabletop sale, face-painting, barbecue, tombola, cake stall and bar.
Afternoon tea was also served up at the event which was attended by more than 600 people.
Mike’s wife Carol said: “Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart for making Sunday a day to remember but most of all for getting involved and achieving this great figure.”
Any funds left over will be donated to The Peace Project which is funded by charity donations.
Mike was very passionate about donating his tumours and organs for research and this was one of his wishes.
