GM Fundraising has launched the ‘GM Football Fives’ – a national five a-side football competition for the glazing industry and friends, set to take place on Saturday 9 May 2015.
Home of Birmingham City Football Club, St Andrews, will provide the setting for the day which will offer the opportunity to put a team of people together from any area of the business – from fitter to chief executive. Company’s customers are also welcome to join a team.
Adrian Barraclough, chairman of Quickslide and GM Fundraising team member, said: “Each team will consist of eight players and have a guaranteed three matches under the watchful eye of fully qualified referees for just £800 per team. The eight-player registration includes entry to the awards party evening hosted at St Andrews, and of course additional tickets for the fun once the final whistle has gone can also be purchased for £25 per adult, £10 per child aged 10 to 16 with children under 10 welcome for no charge.
“Aside from the football competition – including awards and trophies for the winners and runners-up, as well as ‘Player of the Tournament’, ‘Beat the Goalie’ and ‘Golden Boot’ to name just a few -there will be plenty more besides to entertain supporters including an evening buffet, disco, fundraising activities and cash bar till 11pm.
“At GM Fundraising, it is important that we host events that people will enjoy – as aside from the fundraising aspect, it really is all about having fun,” continued Adrian. “We believe the GM Football Fives will become a date not to be missed in people’s diaries every year, as everything is set for it to be a truly fantastic day.”
