Many months ago, a Trust employee named Tom Fletcher approached us and asked if would like to be their chosen charity for an upcoming football tournament he was organising between the Trust and local businesses including Barclays bank.
We jumped at the offer and ever since, Tom and his cousin Anthony Snow, who works at Barclays Bank have been hard at work planning and organising the event which ‘played out’ to-day at South Hunsley school in glorious sunshine.
8 teams played six a side football with support from senior personnel from the Trust playing on Toms side, including the eye hospital director, Colin Vize himself! He really wants this camera now…….
Sustenance was provided by way of a BBQ and chilled drinks served up by team members and a thoroughly good time was had by all.
Barclays have generously agreed to match fund everything raised, so we are hopeful that in excess of £1,000 will have been generated today, with every penny going towards the cost of the camera.
Remember. Everything raised will go towards the total. Absolutely nothing is taken away for administration or running costs, other than the costs of staging the events.
Everything from burgers, sausages, drinks and breadcakes to sauces and salad was been donated by local stores.
Great result chaps, even though you were knocked out early on!! (Sorry)
