After a 2-year forced gap due to COVID 19, I would like to invite you to take part in The Jamie MacDonald Memorial Championships 2022, to be held at the University of Wolverhampton, Walsall Campus on Saturday 14th May 2022. The purpose of the day, as well as action-packed judo, is to raise money and awareness for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
In 2014, Welsh Judoka Jamie MacDonald competed at the 2014 Commonwealth Games for Wales. As many of you may have seen this devastating cancer (which receives 0.5% of research funding yet kills more children and young adults than any other cancer) Sadly Jamie lost his battle with cancer and passed away on Sunday 12th November 2017. His story has inspired me to act by arranging this event. This will be the 4th year of the event.
As you can understand charities such as the Teenage Cancer Trust have suffered severely due to the pandemic so it is more important than ever that we raise a lot of money.
About the Charity
This year the charity partner will be the Teenage Cancer Trust as chosen by Jamie’s family and we are very proud to be working with them to raise money for a fantastic cause.
For information on the Teenage Cancer Trust please visit https://www.teenagecancertrust.org/
In addition to the tournament there will be a raffle and auction where you can win some fantastic prizes
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your support and hope that you will come and enjoy the day and help us raise a lot of money for a very worthwhile cause.
Should you have any questions regarding the competition please do not hesitate to contact me either by phone or e mail.

Tournament Organiser
