Football comes homes to raise money for St Mungo’s
24 July 2018
A charity 5-aside football tournament at Wembley Powerleague has raised over £250 for homelessness charity St Mungo’s.
The tournament, organised by housing association Network Homes, featured 11 teams made up of Network Homes staff, contractors and partners each competing for a trophy and shield prize.
All the money raised will go to St Mungo’s and many of the contractors involved have pledged to make further donations directly to the charity.
This is the latest fundraising event staff at Network Homes have organised for St Mungo’s, which is the organisation’s charity of the year. Last year a team of twenty Network Homes cyclists raised over £65,000 riding from London to Paris. In September over 40 members of staff will take on the three peaks challenge to raise more money.
Participants in the football tournament included Brent Council, Calfordseaden, Mace, Madlins LLP, Hunters and LIFE Build Solutions.
This is a fantastic example of the power football has to bring people together for a great cause. Providing people with good quality homes is the core of what we do, so helping homeless people find a safe and secure place to live fits perfectly with our values. We’re pleased this money will go towards tackling homelessness and helping people improve their livesFiona Deal, Executive Director of People & Technology at Network Homes
