A team from recruitment company Axon Moore won HURST’s charity five-a-side football tournament, beating car finance and loan business Zuto in the final. Fourteen teams took part in the seventh annual competition, which took place at the Powerleague Trafford Sportsdome.
It raised £1,700 for Mustard Tree, which supports homeless and other marginalised people across Greater Manchester. Mustard Tree is HURST’s charity of the year for 2017.
The tournament attracted entrants from sectors including financial services, law, recruitment and logistics as well as two teams comprised of Mustard Tree staff and participants in the charity’s programmes.
Axon Moore director Mark Turley was named player of the tournament.
Mark Cuppello, a trainee tax adviser at HURST, who organised the event, said: “This year’s tournament was another great success which raised money for a very worthy charity.”
Mustard Tree provides food, furniture, clothing and training to boost people’s life skills. Founded in 1994, the charity has its headquarters on Oldham Road in Ancoats, Manchester, and sites in Eccles and Little Hulton, Salford.
The tournament proceeds take to over £8,000 the amount HURST has raised for the charity this year.
Other events have included a staff sleep out in the car park of HURST’s Stockport offices and a sponsored 400km cycle ride through Belgium, France and the Netherlands.
