Healthcare comms football match smashes £1,000 fundraising goal

Players prematch Ashfield healthcare Communications for Seashell Trust

Football players all pitched in to make a charity tournament a huge success.

Ashfield Healthcare Communications against the 'Rest of the (healthcare communications) World' tournament at Macclesfield Rugby Club has already raised £1,300.

Piers French, chair of the Ashfield Cares Macclesfield committee, said: "We are fortunate to have friends in other healthcare communications companies who were eager to be involved. The event became a tournament with WRG, BioScript and LOVE LIVE Graphics all contributing players. And all the people taking part or supporting the event feel all children should get access to the learning support they need. Many of us have seen the extraordinary patience needed to raise a child with complex learning difficulties and wanted to do anything we can to help – even in this small way.”

Wendy Bray, fundraiser from Seashell Trust, said: “It was a fantastic evening in brilliant sunshine. Thanks to all the players that took part our students are the ones who will run out the winners at the end of the day.”
