On Friday 2nd February, The Co-operative Academy of Stoke-on-Trent will be linking up with Stoke City Football Club to hold a football festival in memory in one of our former students.
Usman Mohammed (19) unfortunately lost his battle with cancer and the Academy, along with local primary schools and Manchester Creative and Media Academy will pay their respects by taking part in a football festival, to help raise money for Usman’s chosen charity which is opening water wells and pumps in poorer countries.
A very well-liked and respected student, Usman will be missed by all of the Academy and we hope the festival on Friday will be fitting and a way help support his chosen charity.
Stoke City FC are running the festival and there will be signed football memorabilia from both Stoke and Man Utd that will be raffled off to help raise funds.
The festival will run from 1:15pm until 3pm and will feature Pottermuss and Fred the Red.
