Football Tournament for Cancer Focus NI


Staff at CHC Group Ltd and F3 Engineering, all joined forces to battle it out in a football tournament, in aid of Cancer Focus NI.


Gareth Hutton of CHC decided to organise an activity based event for everyone to take part in, in aid of a charity that focus’s their resources on helping and supporting those living with cancer in a diverse way - Cancer Focus Northern Ireland.

Cancer Focus Northern Ireland offers a range of support options to those living with cancer including counselling, family support services, cancer information helpline and support groups to name a few. They also offer advice and support to help improve health by recognising early cancer signs and encourage a healthier lifestyle. They also invest a lot of money into research and awareness campaigns such as No smoking Day, care in the sun along with many more. 

The afternoon proved a success with a great turnout, with five teams of five players each along with supportive spectators cheering everyone on. We were lucky enough to get decent weather for the duration of the tournament, no injuries occurred and everyone enjoyed themselves. A few of the teams even managed to score own goals, including the winning team, but that didn’t stop the players giving 100% with every game. 

A grand total of £304 was raised from this event, which will go a long way in helping Cancer Focus Northern Ireland with their good work.

Well done to Gareth and everyone else that was involved.
