2019 David Stafford Memorial Trophy raises record amount

October 15, 2019

The Sheffield Knights are delighted to announce that, this years David Stafford Memorial Trophy has successfully past the target set by the organising committee of funds raised as the final figure raised is £3054. For a minority sport this is a huge total raised by everyone involved in the event, and will do some good for the designated charity, the British Heart Foundation.

General Manager David Grant spoke of his delight of the final total raised “Given that our sport is very much within the minority sport category, to be able to raise that much for a charity that will help families to not go through what Andy and Sarah has done is something that I’m very proud of, and everyone who played or spectated should be as well.

We can’t thank everyone enough for not only coming down from around the UK and giving up their time but also helping us through sponsorship, purchasing raffle tickets, but also those who donated items to allow us to hit this target”

The day was a huge success, from the revealing of the retired shirt now a permanent fixture at Simple Skate, to the hockey played. In the end it was the Team Wales who ended up victorious after defeating Scotland 1-0

But the team lifting the trophy wasn’t the winner on the day, it was the British Heart Foundation with the money raised, but also the memory of David Stafford – and the hockey played and the spirit it was done so was proof of this.
