Charity football match raised £4,000
HUNDREDS of people turned out for a charity football tournament in memory of a young man who died suddenly aged just 21.
The competition at Goals in Springfield Road, Hayes raised more than £4,000 for Diabetes UK.
The charity was chosen by the family of Jack Cornish, who had the disease.
Jack, of Exmouth Road, South Ruislip died in his sleep on March 20 last year.
At Goals on June 4, 22 teams of eight players played in his memory for the second year running, and more than 400 people came to show their support and play for the Cornish Cup.
Zoe Cornish, Jack's sister, said it was a great day and thanked everyone who came along.
"After Jack's death, me, my family and his friends threw ourselves into rasing money for Diabetes UK in the hope that one day there would be a cure," she said.
"It was a fantastic day we had at Goals and I am so pleased with how much money we managed to raise.
"All the players paid £10 each to enter, then there were raffles held on the day which helped to push the total up.
"The rain held off for most of the day and I want to say a big thank you for everyone for coming out to support the charity.
"We are making this an annual event."
Jack, a former pupil of Queensmead School in Queens Walk, Ruislip, worked for British Airways at Heathrow Airport.
