Bond It scores donations for charity
Published: 14 April, 2016
A team drawn from across the manufacturer of sealants, adhesives and building chemicals recently took part in a five-a-side football tournament for Bond It's chosen charity, Overgate Hospice.
Located in Elland, West Yorkshire, close to Bond It's head office and main manufacturing site, Overgate Hospice provides specialist palliative care to adults suffering from progressive, life-limiting illnesses. To ensure its care is as widely accessible as possible, the hospice delivers its service free of charge. It is funded largely by the local community with some additional support from the NHS.
In total, 15 teams from locally based businesses took part in the three-hour tournament. The Bond It team finished second overall; they lost in the final to RSA Insurance who took away the Overgate Hospice Trophy.
Claire Bradley, community fundraiser at Overgate Hospice, said: "We're delighted that this year's five-a-side football tournament was so well supported, attracting the highest number of teams to date. Collectively, the players, their supporters and their sponsors helped to raise over £1,000 for Overgate Hospice. This will be used towards our running costs, ultimately helping to keep the hospice open. On behalf of the Overgate team, our clients and their families, I'd like to thank everyone involved."
