Benchmark Recruit joined forces with JCI Sheffield to host a football fundraising tournament in aid of the South Yorkshire Community Foundation (JCI’s nominated charity of the year) and the Boots For Africa campaign. The tournament was a culmination of months of hard work by Louisa (who is also Community Director for JCI) and Andrew Whitham of SUFC and simply wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Sheffield FC – and of course the organisations who submitted a team! The six-aside tournament was played at Sheffield FC and, despite the weather, was a great success with over 20 teams competing to win! All teams donated a minimum of £200 to enter and a massive thank you goes to SDL Ltd who went above and beyond and almost doubled the minimum entry with sponsorship! On behalf of Benchmark andf JCI Sheffield we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part and everyone who gave their support. In total we raised almost £9,000 for the South Yorkshire Community Foundation – which is simply amazing! Back by popular demand, watch this space for details of next year’s tournament!
