Cumberland FA Staff Getting Behind CFM Cash for Kids Sports Challenge

As the Sports Challenge to raise funds for CFM Cash for Kids hots up at Cumberland FA, some staff members have agreed to get involved and - following a couple of online polls - we can now confirm the following additional fundraising ideas.

When Cumberland FA reaches the following milestones, our staff have (almost) willingly agreed to do the following in support of the charity:

£700 – Football Development Officer Ray Sempill will wax his legs

£850 – Our Welsh Football Development Officer Helen Aitchison will wear an England kit

£1000 – Ray Sempill will lose his beloved quiff on Thursday 25 October

These will be shown on our social media accounts, so follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!


Cumberland FA has been confirmed as a finalist in the CFM Cash for Kids Sports Challenge – a fundraising competition which aims to support local disadvantaged and disabled sports groups for under 18s.

The main aim behind Cumberland FA’s involvement is to raise money to support the creation of new PAN disability football centres in Cumberland and a PAN disability junior festival programme which offers organised fixtures, as well as supporting CFM Cash for Kids.
