SWH take to the pitch for charity
SWH’s Richard Trump, Works Manager, was recently tasked with putting together ten of SWH’s finest football players in support of Prostate Cancer UK.
A few of the team members hadn’t played football for quite some time, so it was all about dusting off old football boots, proving you’re never too old (or unfit!) to grace the turf and getting stuck in for a fantastic cause.
Once the players were chosen they set out to take part in a 6- A- Side Football Tournament at St James Park, Home of Exeter City on Sunday 27th April. The team, named South West Highways Ltd, were made up of ten eager and raring to go players, who were passionate about the cause and the job in hand.
On the day of the tournament the weather forecast promised very little, with rain and more rain. After one win and a few failed attempts, SWH missed the finals but were proud to say they came third overall.
Of course the real winners were PCUK with a very healthy collection of £802. Thank you to everyone who came along to support all of the teams and to those who donated so generously on the day, it will make all the difference.
