2017 has been a great year for RGB's fundraising efforts, with all the team working hard to raise money for our first ever charity of the year - Rowcroft Hospice.
To step up the fundraising efforts, we decided to host our first ever 5-a-side Football Tournament, where many clients, contractors and consultancies went head to head to lift the champions cup.
We were overwhelmed by the interest and support for our event, which soon became over subscribed.
Despite the wet Devon weather, everyone's spirits were high and there was a lot of light hearted banter between the teams.
After several rounds of high quality matches, the final concluded in a penalty shoot out, where Bailey Partnership kept their nerve, lifting up the winners cup. The trophies were presented by Christy Pym, local Exeter City Football Club player, who also presented Man of the Match, for which the prize was a signed Exeter City Football Club shirt!
After the match there were refreshments and an opportunity to network with other like minded construction professionals.
RGB Recruitment would like to thank their team, Angela Turner & Emma Carlisle for their organising of the event, and Jessica Holleran for her assistance on the day.
We had the support of Tesco who kindly donated towards the costs of refreshments, and also David Lloyd who donated free day passes for our goodie bags.
We would also like to thank the following people for their help in making this event such a great success:
- Sarah Dodd who helped manage the pitches
- our volunteer referees - Stuart Broome, John Cox, Adam Brimacombe, Martin Hobbs, Peter Alderson & Julian Phillips
- Jonathan & Dan from South West Response who were on hand to provide First Aid (which luckily was not required!)
- Jake Wood & the ECFC for their support
- Attendees/ supporters
- and of course, all of the players!
Thank you all!
The total amount raised from the event will be announced soon, so stay in touch through our social media pages for an update!
