Congratulations to one of our customers, McCain Foods in Wombourne, who are celebrating victory after winning a 14-team football tournament in aid of Ronald McDonald House Charity.
Wearing their lucky, unbeaten ERIKS sponsored team kit, five hours of football and one closely-fought final later, McCain’s football team took top spot — with Hereford Lads coming a close second.
The charity football day, organised by staff at the Hereford branch of Cargill, one of McCain’s suppliers, has raised in excess of £1,500 for Ronald McDonald House Charity.
The sum will be split between Ronald McDonald House Birmingham and Ronald McDonald House Bristol, which both provide free ‘home away from home’ accommodation to families who have children in hospital.
McCain team captain, John Timmins said: "Hereford Lads were a great team to meet in the final, but in the end we wanted it more. To come away with seven wins and a draw was fantastic — and to play in aid of such a great charity was even better."
Well done to all the people involved, a fantastic result.
