Local businesses came together to don their football boots and raise funds for charity at an event in the region.
Construction firm Shaylor Group organised the five-a-side football tournament to raise funds for the company charity Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The tournament, on September 16 at the University of Birmingham, has raised £2,000 so far – but money is still coming in.
A total of 16 teams, which involved local businesses, each had to pay a £25 registration fee and raise their own sponsorship.
Organiser Ian Kilvington, Shaylor business development executive, said: “The event was really successful – we had quite a few spectators who came to watch the tournament.
“This was the first event like this we have organised but the feedback has been so positive it is likely to become an annual event.
“The tournament was primarily to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care – Shaylor’s adopted charity – but it was also a good way of networking with local businesses. After the tournament, we had a presentation and awards ceremony at the Gun Barrels pub.
The teams included Shaylor Group, Mills and Reeve, Turner Townsend, KPMG, Birmingham Gateway 9, Birmingham Gateway 10, Nicol Thomas, Tweedale Architects, Brown Jacobson, Four Star, JDI, GVA Grimley Building, ARCO, Broadway Malyan, Anthony Collins Solicitors and HCT FC.
