Our Corporate Football Tournament scored £5,000!
A total of twelve teams from nine local businesses from across West Essex and the borders of East Herts came together on 29 June at Harlow Town Football Club’s arena to compete against each other on the pitch for the inaugural St Clare Hospice Corporate Football tournament trophy.
The round-robin 5-a-side tournament saw 12 teams take part in the event, which has raised an estimated £5,000 of vital funding for St Clare. The participating businesses included: Alloy Fabweld Ltd; AltoDigital Networkds Ltd; Hadham Engineering; Kings Transports & Removals; Land Sheriffs; Multitech Site Services; Secret Quote; long-time St Clare supporters, Weston Homes Plc, who entered two teams; and the St Clare Allstars comprised of St Clare Hospice staff and volunteers, sponsored by Greenline Environmental.
The four semi-finalists were Weston Hotspurs (Weston Homes), Weston United (Weston Homes), Land Sheriffs Allstars (Land Sheriffs) and the St Clare Allstars (St Clare Hospice). Winning the tournament was Weston Hotspurs, who took home the St Clare trophy after winning the final match against their familiar rivals, Weston United, with a score of 1-0.
Our Corporate Partnerships Manager, Amy Jacobs, who organised the event, said:
“A huge congratulations to Weston Hotspurs who won the highly coveted St Clare football trophy! The enthusiasm and positive vibes on the night were absolutely heart-warming, and the buzzing atmosphere made the whole event one to remember.
“Yet, an even huger thank-you to each and every team and player who took part – their incredible support to St Clare is what enables us to provide such an excellent standard of specialist palliative care to the whole of West Essex and the borders of East Herts. We can’t wait for next year’s tournament already! We’ll be adding the winning team’s name to our St Clare football shield as we plan to have many more successful tournaments!”
