Forty-two teams, from across the grocery industry, recently competed in the 9th Caravan National 5-a-side Football Tournament, which was sponsored by Kellogg’s.
In total, the tournament raised £22,500, with £380 coming from the newly introduced tombola. The money raised will enable the charity to support more than 15 beneficiaries throughout the year, creating a positive impact on people in the industry who are in need. With the addition of an annual grant, working out at £16/week, the money raised can more than double their disposable income.
During the day, teams from across the industry competed fiercely to obtain the title. The team from Asda Stores reached the final after beating Waitrose 2-0. Whilst, in the other semi-final, Kavli beat Costcutter Supermarkets 3-0 in a penalty shoot out.
Asda Stores played Kavli for the Cup, and after a 1-0 victory, the Asda Stores team took home a new 3rd generation iPad and a bottle of Champagne each. The runners up, Kavli, received a £50 Argos voucher and a gift bag each.
The 10th National 5-a-side Tournament will be held on Saturday 6 July 2013.
