Last week saw our 3rd annual 5-aside football tournament take place in aid of Spread a Smile, this year generously sponsored by Downing LLP.
11 teams joined us at Shoreditch Powerleague for a brilliant day of football, fun and healthy competition, with Hamilton Court FX emerging victorious as winners of the Cup and Corinthia London as runners up. Congratulations also to McVitie’s who were crowned Plate winners and Opticore IT as Plate runners up.
Despite the rain, friends old and new turned out in force to join the football fun and support Spread a Smile, together raising an amazing £7,000 for our work supporting seriously ill children and young people in hospital.
“The Downing team thoroughly enjoyed participating in Spread a Smile’s charity football tournament last Friday. We were thrilled to contribute to such a fantastic cause, helping to raise £7,000.
We understand the significance of this funding in enabling the charity to sustain its invaluable support for seriously ill children and young people in hospitals.
We extend our gratitude to the Spread a Smile team for their efforts in organising this event and look forward to supporting their ongoing efforts.” Downing LLP
In true Spread a Smile style, the team was on hand with lots of treats and drinks to keep the teams going, with Gary one of our Magicians helping to spread smiles in between games.
A huge thank you to everyone involved for helping to make the day so special including our sponsor Downing LLP, Misfits Health for donating the protein bars and our amazing teams for taking part: Opticore IT, Hamilton Court FX, Convex Insurance, West One Loans (Enra Finance), Canary Wharf Contractors, McVitie’s and The Corinthia London.
