Louise Leech from Hemel Hempstead said:
"It’s my 40th birthday this year so I wanted to do something to really challenge myself. My sister and I both have children, we have friends that have lost children and friends that have died leaving children, so know the impact and how much support is needed, and that there is often a gap when it comes to mental health support. The last year more than ever has meant that more children than ever are going to need access to this sort of support".

Sadly due to Covid-19 This event had to be postponed, however sadder news was to follow! It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we have to announce that Toby despite a great fight lost the battle against the cardio-oesophageal cancer!
We have the permission of Toby's partner Kelly to still proceed with the charity match as soon as its safe to do so and as promised to Toby the J.O.Y Charity football kit will be unveiled at his charity match - This time we play in the honour or Toby Dawson.
JOY Charity Football Match and Evening of Fun-TBC
Was diagnosed with stage 4 cardio-oesophageal cancer on October 1st & subsequently had a pre op mid october to see if they could operate on him. Sadly they couldn't.
From November the 27th He has been put on a trial drug + Chemo down in London at Sarah Cannon research UK clinic in Harley Street. Each Cycle lasts 21 days where he has to take 4000mg of chemo tablets each time for 14 days after each infusion. Toby was to tired to work so we decided to help support Toby's family during this troublesome time.
50% of the match fees and donations during the game will go to Toby's family to try and help to support them in their time of need & the other 50% will go towards the holiday home for children suffering bereavement and living with mental health conditions through us here at JOY.
At JOY we made the conscious decision that whilst we are raising funds to purchase and sustain the holiday home we also want to support causes like Toby and his families along the way, after all Toby has children and here at JOY were all about helping kids to smile again.
Sadly due to the match being postponed we had to cancel this event and during this time Toby Dawson lost his battle with cancer and passed away!
Charity Match will still take place at Newmarket FC who kindly donated the venues for this to be able to take place as they have stated they are still willing to support this event at a new arranged date and as soon as its safe to do so the match will still go ahead in Toby's honour. Date TBC.
POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19
TBC will see a charity Football match take place at Newmarket F.C followed by an evening of fun to raises money for JOY
JOY Charity Football Match After party - Evening of Fun
After what is promising to be an exciting 1st football for the JOY charity football team we will be hosting a full evening event afterwards thanks to Newmarket F.C. who have kindly donated the venue. Newmarket F.C approached us to offer us the use of their fantastic football ground as well as offering us the bar venue for free also, giving us the perfect opportunity to put on a great evening for all to enjoy.
JOY will be accompanied for the evening by the fantastic due So80's duo who will be performing live to give us the evening of fun that we are looking to provide. So80's offered their time at a discounted rate which was amazing and a sponsor has stepped forward and donated the balance ensuring that all money raised on the evening stays within the charity, as well as So80's we are amazed to offer a guest appearance from who we consider the UK's best magician Jamie Seagrave, Jamie has donated his time for completely FREE of charge to aid our cause! Jamie Seagrave has recently performed for the likes of Rio Ferdinand and is one of the best you'll see.

October 2021 will See Lee Nocton and his team take on the mighty Everest for JOY with the help of Hays Travel in Cambridge!
Resident peak walker Lee Nocton has decided this year to take the peak challenge one step further by taking on the mighty Mount Everest up to the Karla Platther.
Lee will be part of a team of 3 former soldiers that will be taking on the journey up Everest. With both military and mental health being connected we felt this was such a great way to raise money for the charity and also to raise mental health awareness!
