On the evening of Thursday 25th April, Crawley Down Football Club were host to the 19th annual ‘Adam Dabell Memorial Cup and Trophy’ football match between Imberhorne and Sackville Sixth Forms – in celebration of the life of  Adam Dabell and to raise further voluntary contributions to the charity ‘CRY’ (Cardiac Risk in the Young).
In front of a large crowd of mainly our Town’s wonderful young people, Imberhorne took the Cup and Trophy, beating their Sackville friends 2 – 1 in another gripping game.
Once again the crowd looked forward to enjoying an evening of great Football and the two teams did not disappoint, despite some heavy rain during the match!
Coming out at the start of the evening looking evenly matched and, with the great skill we have come to expect, entertained us all with 90 mins of terrific football. Another hugely successful evening for both schools and indeed the local Community as a whole; physical and skillful. Imberhorne are currently still leading 10 : 8 in the overall head to heads but things are hotting-up.   Watch this space!
 It is now 18 years since the death of Adam to an un-diagnosed heart condition.
Voluntary contributions on the night of the match, plus donations from friends and Adam’s family, raised  £600 for  CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).
Opening times 10am -12pm. A warm welcome to all, particularly those suffering or caring for someone with dementia. There will be no community fridge at present.
Please note that the deadline for submissions to the newsletter is 11am on Thursdays.

PRAYER FOR THIS WEEKEND 
Dear Lord: We pray for all those serving at our groups and services this weekend, whether running the tech, leading music, giving the talk, running youth and children’s groups or involved in other ways. Show me how I might be able to encourage and support someone else this weekend and would you stir up my heart to be praying for our church and your people, and especially during these times. Amen.
