A team of budding footballers from our Derby site have taken part in a charity five-a-side football tournament to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
The Webhelp UK side not only helped to raise £1700 for this worthy cause but also topped the league on the day, triumphing over 7 teams to win 3-1 in the final. The winning team included Mike Jackson, Scott Fowkes, Steve Robbins, Tony Moorhouse, Josh Wisdom, Jordan Patten, Ross Ward and Craig Condon.
The event, organised by the British Heart Foundation, invited a number of local businesses to take part in the day’s activities with over 120 people participating.
Our Derby site has a history of sporting success having won a previous charity five-a-side competition in October, raising £1300 for charity, Wish Upon a Star.
Charitable contribution is a key part of our corporate ethos at Webhelp UK and we actively encourage our colleagues to participate in local events and to fundraise for local charities.
Customer experience professional, Tony Moorhouse, who led the team from our Derby site, commented on the event. Tony said:
“The tournament was a fantastic day and it was a brilliant opportunity to contribute to the work of the British Heart Foundation. There was a great atmosphere with lots of competitive spirit and most importantly, it was all for a great cause. We were all very proud to represent Webhelp UK and being able to bring home the trophy was a real bonus.”
