Duo football team help raise £6,600 for The Christie Charity

IMG_0737

Duo's football team took part in the annual NCC Group corporate 5-a-side football tournament on 27 November, in support of The Christie Charity. 

Fifteen teams participated in the tournament, which took place at the Trafford Park Soccerdome. The entrants consisted of a variety of companies including RBS, KPMG, Barclays, PWC and Deloitte.

The Duo team made a strong start to the competition, beating RBS, NCC Group and KPMG in the groups stage and qualifying for the semi-final. However, after losing the semi-final round to PWC, Duo left the competition. PWC went on to win the overall tournament.

Anthony Brimelow, Director of Duo and team captain, said "This was our first year competing in the tournament, all the teams played to a high standard and there was a healthy competitive atmosphere. The Christie is a great cause. Many of our employees have had contact with the facility and have high regard for the difference it makes in our local community so we were particularly keen to take part in the tournament and show our support."

The Christie Charity raises cash to fund projects which are outside the scope of the NHS. Last year, they funded a number of different projects, from a new radiopharmacy, a new wig service and a state-of-the-art surgical robot to groundbreaking cancer research and communications skills training for nursing staff.

The £6,600 donation was raised through tournament entrance fees and was generously match funded by NCC Group.
