Leeds team raises over £500 for local homeless charity
Footballers from the Society raised more than £500 for vulnerable and homeless people in Leeds at a charity tournament.
A seven-a-side team joined Emmerdale & Crypt 7’s knockout in aid of St George’s Crypt, alongside footballers from Legal & General, Dignity, Aviva and Estate Planning Group at Farsley AFC’s Throstle Nest ground. The team topped their group and were eventually knocked out in the quarter-finals.
The total amount raised was £580, with £460 through raffle ticket sales and £120 via spectator tickets.
The team’s entry into this event was co-ordinated by our Armley and Beeston branch manager, Chris Sykes, who said: “We are delighted to have continued our association with St George's Crypt by raising £580 for them. This local charity provides food, shelter and support to homeless people in Leeds, and we hope to be taking part in this event again next year.”
