Coronation Street star Sam Aston will kick-off the football tournament which is a centrepiece for a fundraising day of fun on Saturday (May 2).

Friends of Todmorden woman Abigail Marshall, who is fighting breast cancer, wanted to raise money for The Haven, which has helped Abigail and her family so much with advice and help.

The event runs at Ewood Lane, Todmorden, from 10 am to 4pm, and Sam, who plays Chesney in the ITV soap, will start the football tournament off at around 10.30am.

The day also includes games like a penalty shootout, blow-up boxing (which has giant inflatable gloves), face-painting, jewellery making and crafts to try your hand at, as well as a range of stalls, raffles, pick-a-box, and a bran tub.
