Charity is the real winner after legends clash

The hair may be a little greyer, and the legs a little slower, but that didn’t stop Cayman’s footballing legends taking to the pitch once more.

In the latest in a series of Clash of the Legends games West Bay came out clear winners over East End 6-1. But the scoreline was secondary as the real winner was the Hope For Today Foundation.

They event raised $1,500 for the West Bay charity that helps people recover from alcohol and drug addiction.

Organiser Brent Hydes said the events provide not only the opportunity to relight friendly football rivalries from years gone by, but also offer financial support to pay for running costs of the halfway houses he runs.

“It was a tremendous atmosphere between old friends, coming together to assist individuals, with substance abuse issues, and bringing about positive change through sports,” said Mr. Hydes.

“In attendance were around 150-175 persons. The funds raised from this particular event $1500. That money goes to rent and utilities. “We want to thank everyone for their support. Special thanks to Marcus Cumber, William McKeeva Bush, Joey Hew, McAlpine, Calypso Grill, JUNK, Lobster Pot, CNB, Frank Hall, Dr. Steve Tomlinson, the Cayman Islands Government and others for making this series a reality.”
