On behalf of Kickoff@3 and all the fantastic partners involved, it was a humble pleasure to deliver our cohesive football match on Saturday in loving memory of Stephen.
Very fitting for the occasion that it ended up as a 1-1 draw, in a closely competed game played in a fantastic spirit bringing South and East London together in unity with SL Kings Fc and Yarnee. There will be a rematch in due course, to crown the ultimate Stephen Lawrence Day Winners.
However for now we are all savouring the warmth and love from everyone who attended and contributed to a very successful event.
Humbled that Clive Driscoll and your Honourable Stuart Lawrence attended as guests on the day, which humbled the audience who appreciated the great support for the occasion.
As you may be aware not only was it a wonderful day hosted in the heat beat of Lambeth Borough, there was positive media coverage surrounding the event on BBC Radio London, Colourful Radio, ITN News and the Havering Daily . Also there was a Podcast from Tony Rice.
Not only did we host the Football but we had Sammy 777 and Boy Sayso, who are two young men who composed songs especially for Stephen Lawrence Day, which has attracted amazing interest.
Paul Mckenzie from Youth Unity capped the day with awesome film footage, which featured the wonderful flyer produced by Lee Wood from Ember Designs that we have used to heavily to promote the event on social media.
I have attached some photos taken from Sundays event, but I am sure others will have too.
You will find listed below the song links composed by Sammy 777:
