Curve Ball Cup
Curve Foundation, who are a local Chelmsford based charity, specialising in supporting children and young people with mental health issues, put on their first ever football tournament and family event, called ‘The Curve Ball Cup’ on Sunday 11th June 2023.
The event saw eight football teams come together in seven-a-side games, to compete for the Curve Ball Cup Trophy.
The teams/players very kindly secured sponsorship for the event, to fundraise for the important work that Curve
Currently, Curve Foundation have two regular counsellors, that provide support to the students of Moulsham High School for a majority of the week. Since the Covid 19 pandemic, the number of young people suffering with their mental health has increased dramatically and wait times with the NHS to see a counsellor, are ridiculously long. Curve is helping to bridge this gap by providing free counselling in Chelmsford, thanks to donations, sponsorship and support from the local
community and businesses.
The ‘Curve Ball Cup’ was the first event of it’s kind, that we have hosted as a charity, which we hope to repeat for many years to come. The event was held at Moulsham High School and families came to support their teams and browse the stalls who attended.
It was a fantastic day, the sun was shining down and there was a brilliant atmosphere. The Mayor of Chelmsford,
Councillor Linda Mascot, very kindly attended the event to present the winning team with the trophy and also to hand out medals to the teams who took part.
Dandara won the first ever Curve Ball Cup, with Inter- Springfield as runners up.
