THE second Silverstone Fleet Management fundraising football tournament proved as popular as the first, but has raised more than double the amount of money this time around.

Twelve businesses from across Northamptonshire took part in the five-a-side charity competition on Sunday (15 August) at Daventry Football Club in aid of the Cynthia Spencer Hospice.

Organised by sales manager Ryan Bishop (pictured above right with the rest of the Silverstone team), the overall tournament winners were Euro Building and Maintenance Contractors Limited, while runners up were YMD Boon Architects on a day that drew more than 150 to the fund raising event. In total £2,096 was raised – more than doubling the £732 raised at the previous year’s event.

Scott Norville, managing director at the Northamptonshire broker, said:

“We are thrilled at the success of the second Silverstone Soccer event. Cynthia Spencer Hospice has been our charity of choice for the past five years now.

“There’s a lot of members of the Silverstone Fleet Management team who have had personal involvement with the hospice. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful charity local to us in Northamptonshire and we want to do our bit to support it.

“This event was about raising money for a fantastic charity but also about getting people together after all the restrictions of the pandemic, and having some face-to-face interaction. The level of play was amazing, a lot of the teams had been training for months so the standard was really good.”

Silverstone Fleet Management has already committed to running the tournament again next year.
