On Thursday 1st October we had the honour of photographing the first annual Kick Cancer Cup at the Histon FC. The Kick Cancer Cup is a charity football match held to raise money for Addenbrookes Hospital’s Oncology Unit. This year’s match was between Fulbourn Bluebirds WFC, captained by the founder of the Cup Samantha Isaacson, and S-Tech league representative, co-managed by Vicky Neal (Watford WFC) and Chris Abbott (Cambridge FA).
To say the evening was a success would be an understatement, over 500 people attended and more than £9,000 was raised! But the success didn’t just come from the attendance and the money, it came from the incredible atmosphere, the hundreds of people standing united and cheering the night away. The cheers weren’t just for the goals though, they were for fighting cancer, for embracing life and for a girl playing the game she loves, refusing to let cancer stop her.
