PROFESSIONALS SCORE FOR DOUGLAS MACMILLAN

Financial and procurement recruitment specialist Sellick Partnership, and chartered accountants Mitten Clarke hosted a 5-a-side football tournament for local businesses in aid of Douglas Macmillan. The West Midlands Professionals Football Tournament  saw  fifteen teams from a number of key employers participate in this inaugural event which raised &pound1300 for the local charity.

The afternoon started off with the group stages, followed by a Plate and Cup competition which resulted in UK Fuels being overall winner, closely followed by runners-up Kindertons. In the Plate competition,  Beswicks Solicitors took the winning title – storming to victory with an end score of 5:0 against the hosts Sellick Partnership.

Dan Viggars, captain of the UK Fuels team, commented, "My team mates and I really enjoyed taking part in the West Midlands Professionals Football Tournament. It was competitive, well organised and for a really good cause. We were delighted to win the overall tournament and we will be returning next year to defend our title!"

All the funds raised from the tournament have been donated to Douglas Macmillan, a fantastic charity that provides palliative care for adults suffering with terminal illnesses in North Staffordshire.

Gill Bellchambers, Group Director at Sellick Partnership, comments: “This was been a fantastic day for all the firms involved - it was competitive, enjoyable and provided an informal networking environment, plus it was all in aid of  Douglas Macmillan, a charity that Sellick Partnership  has a longstanding relationship with.

“I’m delighted to say that several teams are keen to book their places for next years’ tournament already, providing us with a strong platform to grow the tournament from strength to strength, and to significantly increase the money that we raise for this local charity. "
