Berkeley Homes Charity Football Event
Held at Lucozade Powerleague pitches beneath the famous Wembley Stadium Arch, a team from Alumasc Roofing Systems took part in a Berkeley Homes Charity Football Event to help raise funds for Demelza Hospice Care for Children. A staggering £40,000 was raised towards the charity!
Despite best efforts Alumasc didn’t qualify past the group stages but were delighted to participate in aid of such a worthy cause. The team came close to progressing further in the competition but their fate was sealed by a ‘last kick of the game’ equaliser from their opposition in the final group game. Congratulations to Laser Electrical who were crowned this year’s tournament winners.
Monies raised will allow Demelza to provide 24 hours of hospice care for over 47 children ensuring they and their families are supported by a team of qualified doctors, nurses, therapists and carers so the fund-raising tournament was hugely important.
Donna Wells from the charity said “On behalf of all the children and families that use the services of Demelza Hospice Care for Children I wanted to say a huge thank you to all who took part in the Berkeley Homes football tournament at Wembley”.
Alumasc look forward to strengthening their squad during the next transfer window and taking part again next year! Alumasc would like to thank Berkeley Homes and Demelza for the opportunity to get involved as it was a really fun, enjoyable and worthwhile day.
