'Bazman' charity football tournament raises £210

Adam Ballard sadly died unexpectedly in 2011, and was always a very generous and passionate supporter of CLIC Sargent.

His friends, family and colleagues host a charity football tournament in his memory every year, and this year was no exception.

The tournament

Six teams entered the tournament at Bentham Country Club in Gloucester, with Top Cats taking home the gold. Three brave young men went even further in their fundraising efforts as they volunteered to have a strip of hair waxed off their lower legs.

The tournament raised £110 which was split between CLIC Sargent and Sports Relief.

As a fantastic additional bonus, Adam’s colleagues in the Capita team provided a grant of £50, and online donations have reached £50 as well.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Caroline Marshall said: “This event was a lovely way for family and friends to come together in honour of Adam. Thank you to everyone involved.”
