SPS colleagues score big for charity in workplace football match

Colleagues from across Somerset Passenger Solutions (SPS) came together for the second SPS charity football match in aid of Macmillan.

Two teams of colleagues went head-to-head in the SPS Spartans versus SPS Warriors match, which was held at Sedgemoor Campus, in Bridgwater.

Colleagues from departments across the organisation attended to cheer on their fellow staff members. They enjoyed a fantastic spread of delicious cakes baked by SPS Driver Kate Turner and drinks kindly donated by fellow Hinkley Point C contractor HOST, which raised additional donations for this worthy charity.

After a tough match with impressive displays from some talented team members, the final score was 9-1 to SPS Spartans.

Thanks to the generosity and support of SPS staff, just under £500 was raised with donations still coming in. This will all go to Macmillan Cancer Care, a charity close to many colleagues at SPS.

Event organiser and SPS Allocator, Billy Davies, said: “Everyone involved in the event had a great time and we are all looking forward to the rematch later this year, where we can raise additional funds for the charity. I hope what we have raised so far will make a difference to the lives of those affected by Cancer”.
