We had a great evening supporting Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice on Friday 10th May. Newfox were very proud to be match day sponsors for Bluebell Wood’s first ever charity football tournament!
Our very own Sales Director, Kev Johnson dusted down his boots as four teams battled it out for the coveted bluebell trophy on Rotherham United Football Club ground.
After the match Kev said, ”At 41 I thought my time as a footballer was up… I was right! It was a brilliant day and was worth the aches and pains to support such an excellent cause!”
After six fantastic games Kev and the Bluebell Wood team had to settle for third place as Team Omexom were crowned the champions.
After the tournament, the Bluebell Wood Charity Champion and Leicester City and England player, Harry Maguire posted a video to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making the night a success.
There were plenty of goals, plenty of fun and some incredible funds raised for the hospice!
David Hall, Corporate Fundraiser at Bluebell Wood said after the match, “I just wanted to take a little time and send a massive thank you over to each and everyone of you for making the first ever charity football match a fabulous success. We’re just totting everything up and will be able to share the total raised with you soon. Again thank you so much for taking part and ultimately for raising funds for the families that are going through the hardest of times.”
