Top football fans from the roofing trade recently joined forces to raise £4,000 at a charity football match final at Villa Park, the home of Premier League Club Aston Villa FC.
Staff from across Russell Roof Tiles Burton and Lochmaben (Scotland) sites gathered at the stadium, on May 27, to go head-to-head with its customers and suppliers in a bid to raise money for its Give 4 Good programme. The programme, which launched this year, was set up to raise £50,000 for local charities and organisations.
The RRT players were joined by staff from Avonside Group, SIG PLC, Roofspace Solutions, Bloor Homes, Barratt Homes, David Wilson Homes, Tarmac, Odisha FC, Davidsons Homes, Crest Nicholson and Kingsley Roofing, all of whom provided great support and generous donations towards the programme.
Ross Hayward, area sales manager at Russell Roof Tiles, said: “We would again like to thank everyone who supported and donated to some truly worthy causes, and we would also like to thank Aston Villa Football Club and their staff, especially Frankie Harrison, for their extremely exceptional service throughout the whole day. Whilst all the players thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the main success of the day was raising an astounding £4,000 for our ‘Give4Good’ Programme.”
