What is match for a day?

Match for a Day is an event designed to raise funds for the work of Lionsraw with under privileged children in Teesside and in other locations including our South Africa feeding programme and our Brazil based English language school. Lionsraw are seeking to add further projects in the Tees Valley and as such we would also like this event to help us raise awareness of our plans to work specifically in the Teesside area.

A Lionsraw team will play against 24 different teams over a 24 hour period hence the name, Match for a Day. This dedicated bunch will each raise sponsorship money for the charity and in turn we will ensure that we get them a fresh and raring team every hour to keep spirits and energy as they endure and hopefully enjoy the experience.
