A FAIR celebrating a new residents' association managed to raise money for a cancer charity in memory of a much-loved keen footballer who died of Leukaemia.
Around 200 people joined in the fun at Bedfont Sports Club on August 18 to celebrate the grand opening of the Orchard Residents Bedfont Association (ORBA).
Families enjoyed egg and spoon races, zumba, fair rides and played football and rounders.
Police were also around to security mark bikes and provide safety alarms as fair-goers enjoyed a bouncy castle, live bands, food stalls and a bar.
While everybody was having fun, they also managed to raise £205 for Macmillan Cancer Trust in memory of Sunjay Vasudev, who lost his fight against Leukaemia in September 2011 when he was just 23-years-old.
In memory of the keen Liverpool football supporter, Sunjay's friends from his old school, Rivers Academy, took part in a football match.
Jin Jhooti, chair of ORBA, said: "The event was a big success, everybody had so much fun and I'm so glad we managed to raise money for Macmillan Cancer, in memory of Sunjay. He was a good friend of my son's and I'd known him since he was born, he loved football so it was really lovely that all his friends got together to play in his memory.
"Lots of kids really engaged with the arts and crafts which was good to see. I'd like to say a big thank you to Bedfont Sports Club for letting us use their grounds."
