KIRKWOOD Hospice is hoping to benefit twice from football fever.
The Dalton hospice wants to cash in on Euro 2004 by holding two events on Sunday, June 13.
They are looking for six-a-side football teams to compete in a tournament at Leeds Road Playing Fields with a kick-off at 10am.
"Your team could be the winners of our first- ever tournament shield," said Joanne Gledhill, Kirkwood Hospice events co-ordinator.
"Each team will play at least three games of tournament football, while at the same time raising funds for the hospice."
Football fever will continue into the afternoon as hospice staff prepare to support England in their first Euro game.
The England v France match will be live on big screens in the main banqueting suite at the McAlpine Stadium.
Prior to kick-off at 7.45pm there will be pre-match entertainment from Steve Kindon, a former Town player, plus a three-course carvery.
The dress code will be "Come on England" and football shirts are encouraged. Tickets are priced at £19.95.
Interface Fabrics, based at Mirfield, are sponsoring both events.
" Interface Fabrics takes its role in the community seriously," said Paul Goodall, managing director.
"This includes supporting Kirkwood Hospice.
"Without it, people who have a life limiting illness would be deprived of a place which cares for the whole person."
