Corporates compete in football tournament hosted by Brewin Dolphin, raising over £3,000 in support of our mission to beat blood cancer

On Thursday 11th September, Brewin Dolphin hosted a 5-a-side charity football tournament with twelve teams battling for top place at the Star City centre in Birmingham. The event was a great success and raised over £3,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Corporate teams competing included Catley Lakeman, BNP Paribas and Wright Hassall, with Glide UK winning the final to become champions of the tournament at the end of the day.

Stephen Glazzard, Head of Office, Brewin Dolphin Birmingham, said: “We are delighted that the tournament and fundraising initiative was so well received again this year. It was a wonderful way for local businesses to join forces and put something back into the community and to raise over £3,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. Thank you to all of those who participated and well done to Glide UK for the win!”

A huge well done to everyone involved in the tournament which sounds like it was an absolutely huge success!

We're so lucky to have corporate sponsors like Brewin Dolphin prepared to get behind the cause and help us beat blood cancer. As a blood cancer survivor myself I cannot tell you enough just how much of a difference your support and donations have made and will continue to make to the lives of blood cancer patients. Keep up the good work!

Well done Brewin Dolphin. I recognise a face in the team from when I visited your Birmingham office a couple of years ago to talk to you about my battle with Hodkins Lymphoma. I am still here, and reached the 5 yr clear mark in March. Thank you for all you continue to do to raise funds for LLR

Best wishes
