Back of the net for football fundraiser
Raising funds was the goal when a multinational organisation met RoSPA on a chilly Birmingham astroturf in November 2015.
Twenty nine hardy souls from RoSPA and Aecom‘s Birmingham office braved biting winds and heavy rain to take part in a five-a-side football tournament at Aston University. It was organised by Jack Morgan, a trainee technician from Aecom, to raise funds for RoSPA’s LifeForce home safety project.
With a little help from guest goalies Tryfon Ampartzis, Simon Caswell and Jon Kyte, a plucky four man team of Manjinder Singh, Thomas Townsend, Jitesh Jagatia and Jack Morgan emerged as victors.
One hundred and seventy pounds was raise on the day for LifeForce, a volunteer-led project which helped families with children under five, vulnerable adults and people aged over 65.
