Charity Football Tournament Scores For Derbyshire Wish Foundation

21st November 2014

A group of East Midlands businesses have come together for an annual charity football tournament, raising over £1,800 for local award-winning charity, The Maria Hanson Foundation.

Now in its third year, the event organised by recruitment specialists, Sellick Partnership and customer experience outsourcers and returning champions, Webhelp UK, aims to raise money for a nominated local charity each year.

This year’s five a side tournament kicked off at the weekend in Pride Park, Derby, with 22 sides competing to clinch the title. Employees from Webhelp, the Sellick partnership, NHS, University of Derby, Flint Bishop LLP plus many more were amongst those involved in the charitable efforts.

The Maria Hanson Foundation, also known as me&dee, is a Derbyshire based charity that provides special experiences for people with life limiting or terminal conditions. The money raised by the tournament will see the continuation of me&dee’s work for children, adults and their loved ones.

Anthony Moorehouse, Customer Experience Manager, at Webhelp, said:

“It was a very successful day with so many coming out to take part in the fun. It always good to see local businesses come together to support a charity such as the Maria Hanson Foundation. There was a lot of healthy competition going on as two Webhelp teams were drawn against each other in the knock out stages. Everyone commented on how great the mood of the day was and can’t wait for next year’s tournament.”

After a long day of competition, the final saw teams from Accrofab and Sherwood Forest Hospital NHS Trust vying for the title. In the end, it was Sherwood who pressed on to score a 1-0 victory and take the coveted trophy.
