Bond It shoots for charity goal

Located in Elland, West Yorkshire, near to Bond It’s head office and main manufacture site, Overgate Hospice provides specialist palliative care to adults suffering from progressive, life-limiting illnesses.

The hospice delivers their service free of charge to ensure they are as widely accessible as possible, and so are mainly funded by the local community.

15 teams from local businesses took part in the three hour tournament. The Bond It team finished second overall, losing in the final to RSA Insurance.

Graham Helm, operations director at Bond It said: Bond It has been an on-going supporter of Overgate Hospice for a number of years and our participation in the charity football tournament continues that relationship. This reflects a strong belief in corporate social responsibility which is all part and parcel of Bond It’s winder quality focused approach.”

Claire Bradley, community fundraiser at Overgate Hospice continued: “We’re delighted this year’s five-a-side football tournament was so well supported, attracting the highest number of teams to date.

“Collectively, the players, their supporters, and their sponsors helped to raise over £1,000 for Overgate Hospice. This will be used towards our running costs, ultimately helping to keep the hospice open.

“On behalf of the Overgate team, our clients and their families, I’d like to thank everyone involved.”
