Businesses from across London Midtown gathered to play in the Midtown Business Club's Summer Football Tournament in support for local children's charity Coram Fields. 16 teams entered from a range of local businesses from law firms to accountants. Urban Fitness (Chancery Lane) were worthy winners with Collyer Bristow lifting the plate trophy.
Ian Roberts, Chairman of the Midtown Business Club said: “The inaugural Midtown Business Club Summer Football Tournament was a great success - we were thrilled with the numbers taking part, and the spirit in which the games were played. The aim of this tournament was to further enhance the strong sense of camaraderie that we have in Midtown and to use sport to create new connections between local businesses and the local community, which is so fantastically supported by Coram’s Fields.
"We are hugely grateful to the team at Coram’s Fields for helping us make this vision a reality, and to our generous partners and sponsors Infinite Global and Farebrother for their ongoing support. Lastly, a big thank you and well done to all the participating teams – not least our Cup winners Urban Fitness and Plate winners Collyer Bristow!”
Stuart Woods, Chief Executive Officer, Coram's Fields, commented: "The tournament, and the generous support of all the participating teams and sponsors, has helped raise vital funds for the upkeep of our park and services which support local children and young people. We look forward to welcoming back the Midtown Business Club and its members in the future.”
Farebrother's Jack Williamson added: "We were proud to support this inaugural football tournament. We had a fantastic evening and, more importantly, raised funds which will make a real difference to the children and young people of Midtown."
