Football & Fundraising...
Many members of the team at Churches Fire and Security support charitable causes, and that is certainly the case for our Customer Support Team Manager Lyndsey.
Lyndsey’s husband is a keen footballer, who is proud to play as part of veterans (Over 35’s) league team Woodcomb Vets. As luck would (or would not!) have it, Woodcomb Vets were drawn to play their league match against a team of ex-professional footballers - Charcoal Vets.
Given the fact that Charcoal were undefeated and were previous winners of all four cups in the Veterans league, Woodcomb appreciated that their cup run may soon come to an end. Undeterred, they decided to use the opportunity to raise as much money as possible for a charity close to their hearts - mens charity Prostate Cancer UK.
Lyndsey set about arranging cake sales, raffles and collection buckets. She secured prizes from a range of local businesses and we at Churches were pleased to help!
The result was a great match where Charcoal congratulated Woodcomb on putting up a good fight, and a sum in excess of £300 was raised for Prostate Cancer UK to help fund their vital work!
Well done Lyndsey and congratulations for your fundraising efforts!
