Five-a-side tournament raises £2,750 for The People’s Kitchen
Twelve teams competed in the event, held at Goals in Gosforth, which saw mixed teams taking part to win the overall title.
The event raised £2,750 for The People’s Kitchen, the much-loved charity which supports homeless and vulnerable people in Newcastle and is the focus of Sintons’ fundraising for two years.
Sporting Chance North East were named as winners of the tournament.
The five-a-side tournament is the latest event to be organised by Sintons on behalf of The People’s Kitchen, and several thousands of pounds have already been raised to support the charity’s work in assisting people at risk of homelessness – and those who are unemployed, lonely or living in poverty – with food, essential supplies and friendship.
Many more events and fundraising initiatives are planned over the course of the next two years.
David Pritchard, head of marketing and chair of the firm’s CSR committee, said: “We are well known for the quality and variety of events we organise, which are always so well supported by businesses across the region. Our five-a-side tournament has seen a similarly positive response and we are very grateful to those who took part and made donations.
“The People’s Kitchen is a fantastic charity, whose resources and support are needed by growing numbers of individuals and families in this very challenging economic climate, and we are delighted to again raise such a significant sum for them.
“We have many more events planned on behalf of The People’s Kitchen and are very grateful to the North East business community for their support in making them the success they are.”
