Aldershot Town Football in the Community Trust in association with ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, are proud to announce the inaugural ‘Red, White & Blue day’ schools’ tournament is set to take place on December 11th, 2017.
The tournament, taking place at the new Everyone Active leisure centre in Hart, will celebrate Red, White & Blue day – a national fundraising campaign that raises money in support of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.
An annual event that celebrates a range of military aspects, 2017 turns its focus to women in the forces, celebrating 100 years of the Women’s Royal Navy Service and exploring all the roles women have taken up when serving their country.
As well as inviting schools across the Hampshire, Surrey and Berks area to participate in the tournament the Trust will be assisting in the delivery of curriculum time sessions. The lessons will explore the role women have played in service as well as provide opportunities to build paper tanks, spitfires and battleships with school children, many of whom will have close military links.
The tournament is open to under 11 sides and must feature at least one female player.
