World Hepatitis Day Football Tournament in Scotland
This year C-Level aims to hold a 5 aside football tournament on July the 28th 2011 for World Hepatitis Day. This will involve charities and other organisations working with those affected by hepatitis B and C. The event will act as an awareness raising event as well as a fundraiser for C-Level.
It will aim to involve clients as well as staff and other interested parties/community groups to encourage healthy living through sport and at the same time raise awareness of the prevention, testing and treatment of hepatitis.
The event includes a trophy presentation and speakers on hepatitis from community groups. During this event everyone involved will be asked to light a lantern in honour of all those affected with hepatitis.http://www.c-level.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=51:whd-football-tournament&catid=2:latest-news&Itemid=3
