A CHARITY fun day in Dewsbury saw politicians, doctors, teachers and religious leaders face off in a six-a-side football tournament.
The second annual Let’s Unite charity fun day took place on Savile Town playing fields aiming to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support and bring together local communities.
Last year’s Let’s Unite event won a national community education award and this year participants included Dewsbury and Mirfield MP Simon Reevell and well-known headteacher Jonny Mitchell, of Educating Yorkshire fame.
There were junior and senior football tournaments along with family activities, refreshments and a barbeque.
The morning saw junior football competitions for under-11s to under-15s before the adults took centre stage in an over-40s event.
West Yorkshire Police, local politicians, doctors from Dewsbury Hospital, Thornhill Community Academy teachers, Kirklees Council staff, teams of priests and imams as well as local residents from Savile Town and Thornhill all took part.
The tournament was won by Overthorpe Sports Club, who beat West Yorkshire Police 3-2 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in the final.
