Bob and the team are lacing up their football boots in order to raise money for children’s charity, Barnardo’s.
Bob’s Business has organised a charity 7-a-side tournament, taking place on 1st October (kick off from 6.30pm) at the Honeywell Sports Village, Barnsley. The charity tournament will include four teams made up of organisations based within the Digital Media Centre, these include; Two Bob’s Business teams, creative agency Awesome., and a team made up of other members from the DMC.
Bob’s Business took part in and sponsored the 2018 White Hat Rally, a charity event set up by professionals from the information security industry to help raise money for Barnardo’s.
The charity football tournament is part of Bob’s Business fundraising campaign for the White Hat Rally. Other fundraising campaigns include a charity bake sale, where we sold a selection of mouthwatering cakes, buns and sausage rolls, raising a whopping £183.26.
There will also be a charity raffle draw at the end of the tournament where entrants have a chance to win prizes including:
- A Citroen C2, used by one of the Bob’s Business White Hat Rally teams*
- Four tickets to a Barnsley FC home match
- Two tickets to watch Huddersfield Town’s Premier League clash with Fulham on 5th November
- A Hornet RC car
- Barnsley Bowl Vouchers
& much, much more!
This years White Hat Rally theme was a ‘Roaming Romans’ navigational driving challenge in old bangers, starting off in Bradford and finishing off at the Scottish Border.
The clue deciphering, head-scratching treasure hunt was an action-packed weekend all focused around the effort to raise vital funds for Barnardos, and helping improve the lives of vulnerable children across the UK, in particular those affected by online child exploitation.
So far, over 20 teams involved in the 2018 White Hat Rally have managed to raise £21,642 for Barnardo’s, with this figure only set to rise.
Roisin Meguer, Events Coordinator at Bob’s Business, said: “We are really looking forward to the Charity football tournament, it’s going to be a really fun evening and we’re hoping to raise lots of money for Barnardos.”
“We’ve already had so much support from local businesses working towards our fundraising target of £2000,” she continued.
“We hope to see as many familiar and new faces there as possible. The team at Bob’s Business are extremely competitive so they won’t take this tournament light heartedly.”
