Banner joins local companies to raise money for the NSPCC in a 5-a-side football tournament. 

On 10th March 2022, members from Banner's sales and marketing teams joined forces with Business Fives, a corporate charity events company, to raise money for the NSPCC through a 5-a-side football tournament at Bradford Goals, Bradford, competing against other local companies. 

As a team with rolling substitutes, Banner's All Stars played 8 games and made it all the way through to the semi-final, before unfortunately losing and being knocked out of the tournament.

Our team included Alex Clayton, Callum Hirst, Jordan Eli, Muhammed Esmail, Michael Kehoe, Richard Hallas & Ryan Sewell - who all gave it their best, despite picking up numerous injuries between them, and most of the players not having touched a football in some time! 

"It was a good laugh, for a great cause, and we all enjoyed being out and meeting others from local businesses" - Alex Clayton.  

Banner employees came together to raise a wonderful £325, which was subsequently matched by Banner; raising a total of £650 for the NSPCC.

Banner's All Stars are resting and recuperating now, and looking ahead to the summer, where we'll be getting involved in another similar event! 

Keep an eye out for Banner's All Stars making a comeback in Summer 2022!
