On Friday our UK team took part in the 11th Midlands Charity Football Tournament at Powerleague Nottingham. The annual 5-a-side football tournament is made up of professionals from across the Midlands, each year the tournament goes from strength-to-strength in terms of standard and sportsmanship and this year was no different!
Over the years, the Sellick Partnership has raised more than £15,000 for charity and this year we donated £150 by participating in the event. Chevin made it to the semi-finals of the tournament after 4 wins, 1 draw and then a loss in the knockout stages.
Once again the tournament was in aid of me&dee, an award-winning Midlands based charity that organises holidays and trips away for individuals with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. The charity was formed to create special moments and memories to ensure both children and adults share distinctive experiences moments and memories to ensure both children and adults share distinctive experiences when time is precious.
The football tournament was launched with three aims:
- To raise vital funds for me&dee.
- To promote football as a sport.
- To provide a platform for networking across the Midlands business and public sector community.
We will be back next year!
