Team DSAA had a great day out last Saturday (15th June), which saw our newly formed football team compete against Thames Valley Air Ambulance FC at the Dorset FA County Ground, Hamworthy, Poole.

Event Highlights

When the gates opened at 12pm, the sunny weather added to the positive atmosphere, making it a perfect day for football. The turnout was great, with families and football fans coming together to support the two charities. Dorset FA kindly provided refreshments to keep everyone energised throughout the match and after a fantastic afternoon, we were delighted that DSAA FC came out as winners, scoring 5-2 against TVAA FC.

Alana Hardy, DSAA Fundraising Events Officer said:

A big thank you to all the players, crew, volunteers and supporters who made this event possible. Special acknowledgments go to the Dorset FA for providing the match-kit for DSAA FC, individuals who reached out to offer support by playing in the match and of course, Thames Valley Air Ambulance FC for helping to organise and making the journey to Dorset to play against us! All funds raised on the day will be equally split between both our life-saving services and we can’t wait to do it all again next year.

Stay tuned for more events and thank you for your incredible support!
