Team PDP football fundraiser

Football Fundraiser

Planning & Design Practice competed in the Business Fives charity football tournament in February, raising money for St Lukes Hospice in Sheffield. Team PDP finished the tournament at the Quarter Finals stage, having advanced from the Group and Knockout Stages of the football competition.

A sluggish start in match one resulted in a 1-0 defeat, followed by a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of the Group Winners, with Joe getting PDP on the scoresheet for the first time. A big final group game was needed to ensure PDP advanced. The game looked like it would be a 0-0 stalemate, until Director Jon provided a silky run from inside his own half and slotted the ball home to give PDP their first win of the afternoon.

The first knockout game saw PDP to a comfortable 3-0 victory, with Joe, Scott and Richard all creating chances while Josh and Shaun kept things tidy at the back. Andrew was still alert to danger and pulled off a number of good saves from between the sticks. The next game was a tightly fought encounter which needed to be decided on penalties, with all 5 of PDP’s penalties being put away successfully.

The final game came at the point where fatigue was starting to get the better of the team, which meant losing the game 2-0. Team PDP were delighted to have reached the Quarter Finals, with everyone holding their heads high.

However the better victory was the money raised for St Lukes Hospice. In total £210 was raised, a big thank you to everyone who donated. St Lukes Hospice care for those who have terminal illnesses throughout Sheffield. They aim to control their symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge. We were proud to represent such a good cause.

All eyes set on the next challenge now!
