As part of Resideo’s ongoing support for construction charity, Band of Builders, the heating controls manufacturer will take on Graham Plumbers’ Merchant in a head-to-head football match. Taking place at Ascot United Football Club on January 28th, the charity match will see both teams field players from across their respective businesses in a bid to raise much needed funds.
Daniel Kent, area sales manager at Resideo, is the brains behind the latest charity activity. He says: “Football has always been brilliant at uniting people, so when it came to looking at how we could further support the incredible work that Band of Builders does for our industry, a charity football match seemed like the obvious choice! Yet, while it’s a charity match, that doesn’t mean we’re taking it any less seriously, and would love to see as many faces in the crowd cheering us on.”
Dominic Yeandle, for Graham Plumbers’ Merchant, adds: “Giving back is something we’re always committed to doing, so when Resideo approached us about putting together a team to raise funds for Band of Builders we immediately accepted. Over the past few weeks our team has been putting in the hours at training to ensure the match is an exciting one – all in the name of a very worthy cause!”
In addition to the charity football match, there will also be a silent auction on the night, along with a raffle draw. Prizes have been donated by local businesses, including Graham Plumbers’ Merchant and include a signed England shirt by Declan Rice and a 4-ball round of golf at a choice of venues, with a number of other prizes also up for grabs.
Peter Cape from Band of Builders – a registered charity which completes practical projects to help members of the UK construction industry who are battling illness or injury – comments: “Support like this is really important to the work we carry out as a charity. For those working in the construction industry, being able to access the support they need is crucial and our ongoing collaboration with Resideo will go a long way to ensuring this work continues.”
Tickets for the match are priced at £5 for 18 and over, £1 for 13 – 18 year olds and free entry for 12 and under and are only available on the gates on the day. Doors open at 6:30pm, with kick off starting at 8pm. All proceeds raised on the night will be going towards Band of Builders.
