Last week the Whitmore’s Timber sales and timber yard teams faced off in a friendly football match to raise money for Sport Relief.
For the second time in recent months, the charitable nature of everyone here at Whitmore’s Timber shone through, and together we managed to raise an impressive £186. This has now been gratefully received by the charity and will go towards helping vulnerable people in the UK and abroad.
The match itself was exciting, and jam packed with goals. A cagey first-half ended with the sales team 2-0 up, but the game opened up more in the second-half. As legs began to tire, a run of goals saw the sales team become eventual 6-3 winners against the yard team.
Although both teams gave it their all and performed with both skill and talent, it was said by some that neither should give up their day jobs building up Whitmore’s Timbers as the leading timber merchants online and in Leicester.
Special thanks to Rob Alderson for supplying the kit, Paulina for the photography, and Tom and Nigel for various tasks that were essential to the success of this event.
We would also like to thank Lutterworth Soccer Centre for the use of their facility.
