Follands Sports Football Club : Kings Avenue

Hamble : Southampton : SO31 4NF

Friday 3rd June 2022

In August 2019, Geoff Sim of Southampton had an 'idiopathic cardiac arrest', aged just 49 during a veterans football match for Follands vs Hedge End.

In honour of the emergency services who saved his life and the charities he holds dear, Geoff decided to host the Queen's Jubilee 'Alive and Kicking' Charity Fun Day on the 3rd June.

All proceeds will go towards Wessex Heartbeat, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Ambulance and Mountbatten Hampshire charities whose fundraising has no doubt been affected by the COVID pandemic, so in more need of support now than ever.

We are hoping to raise as much money as possible to help the three charities continue to deliver their crucial services.  I owe a huge thank you to my team mates and opponents who administered CPR at the scene and to the doctors and paramedics from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Ambulance, who worked alongside the road crew from South Central Ambulance Service.  It is thanks to their quick actions that I am alive today. 'Geoff'


I hope to see you all at the event on Friday 3rd June to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee and have a fantastic day!
