The Lee Pearsall Memorial Game held every Boxing Day since 2014 is in remembrance of Lee Pearsall, who was a much loved and respected individual in the community.

The event this year was inundated with support from local and national businesses who donated some incredible prizes that included, a break in the Yorkshire Dales, flying experience, tickets from Andrew Lloyd Webbers School of Rock musical and an evening with Alan Shearer, plus many more.

Event organiser Chris Hargrave said “We have been completely blown away by the response and the support we have had this year. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a worthy cause and doing something like this helps remember Lee in a positive way, along with bringing our small community together to remember him.”

The event was held at Denaby United FC’s pitch, Old Road, Conisbrough where they provided changing facilities and clubhouse to the event free of charge. The club then kindly donated a percentage of their takings on the day to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance requires £12,000 per day to operate and relies solely on donations from events like this to remain operational.

Planning is currently underway for next years event and the organisers are currently selecting their chosen charity, if you would like to support or donate to this event please contact Chris Hargrave at E: chrishargrave@live.co.uk or Shaun Woodward at E: swoodward711@yahoo.co.uk
