We extend our heartfelt thanks to our Ambassador Jason, along with his family and friends, for organising a Charity Football Match in memory of his cherished children, John and Lacey, as well as Terri Harris and Connie Gent. This event honours the memory of four precious lives that were tragically lost.

“On June 8th, 2024, something truly special is happening at the Jubilee Sports and Social Club in Sheffield – a day that celebrates the beautiful lives and enduring legacy of Lacey, John, Terri, and Connie. This day is not just about a football game; it’s about continuing the incredible journey they started, making sure their spirits live on in a way that would make them proud.

The last time I saw Lacey and John was on a video call. Their enthusiasm and passion for helping others shone brightly through the screen. They excitedly shared their experience of meeting a lady fundraising for the Youth Cancer Trust. They had taken it upon themselves to contribute, selling sweets and raising an impressive £4.56. In our conversation, I encouraged them to visit the shop the next morning and proudly share their accomplishment.

Little did I know that would be our last conversation. That evening, Lacey, John, their beloved mom Terri Harris, and their best friend Connie Gent were taken from us far too soon. The loss was unimaginable, and their dreams of donating the money were never fulfilled.

In their memory, and as a promise to continue what they started, I’ve made it my mission to raise funds for the Youth Cancer Trust. On June 8th, 2024, at 2 pm, #adadforever Utd will face Legends FC in a charity football game at Jubilee Sports and Social Club, Clay Wheels Lane, Sheffield S6 1LZ.

Let’s come together to honour these precious lives and turn a tragic moment into a beacon of hope. Every contribution, no matter the size, helps us continue Lacey and John’s legacy of kindness and generosity. Please give what you can and share this journey with us. Together, let’s do something beautiful that reflects the spirit of love and giving that defined their lives.

Join us in transforming tragedy into triumph, ensuring that Lacey, John, Terri, and Connie’s memories shine brightly through the joy we bring to others. Thank you for being a part of this meaningful endeavor.

With love and gratitude,

Jason Bennett”
