Many thanks to Joel Walters who organised a 6-a-side football tournament on Saturday 7th July in aid of stem4.
Almost 100 young people turned up to the tournament at Powerleague in Mill Hill to support the event, including a friend of Joel’s who recently lost his brother. stem4 was suggested to Joel as a worthy charity especially as this charity aims to stem commonly occurring mental health issues at an early stage. Joel was really pleased that John Krause from stem4 came to support the event and speak to everyone.
Joel managed to raise almost £2,000. It was a nail-biting tournament with 12 teams competing. The trophy went to winners from Highgate School – the team ‘Highgate 2’ and runners-up from the JCoss team ‘Untold Scenes’.
Joel was inspired to run this tournament after chatting with his teacher about the issues of mental health in young people and how important it was to raise awareness.
Thank you to Joel and everyone who supported this event!
