Calastone hosts sixth annual five-a-side charity football tournament

RELATED TOPICS​

Calastone, the global funds transaction network, is hosting the sixth annual Funds Industry Football Charity Shield in aid of Make-A-Wish UK, the charity that grants magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. 

The football tournament continues to be a highly anticipated fixture in the UK funds industry calendar.

In the six years that Calastone has held the Charity Shield, it has raised over GBP60,000 for very worthwhile causes. The 2016 tournament, scheduled to take place on Thursday 23 June in Shoreditch, London, opens up the competition once more.

This year, more than 23 teams from leading fund management firms will play against each other to win the much sought after trophy and to make a difference to those supported by the fantastic work of Make-A-Wish. 

Since being established in the UK in 1986, Make-A-Wish has turned the wishes of over 10,000 seriously ill children into magical and life-changing realities. A wish provides these children with hope for the future and the strength they need to cope with their condition. 

Jason Suckley, Chief Executive at Make-A-Wish, says: “I want to say a huge thank you to Calastone and everyone taking part in what I am sure will be a fantastic event. Your support is invaluable and will go a long way in helping the seriously ill children and young people that turn to us.”

Jon Willis, Chief Commercial Officer of Calastone, says: “In 2016, our sixth year running the Funds Industry Football Charity Shield, we are delighted to be able to support Make-A-Wish. I am hugely proud that not only does this event continue to be in such high demand and provide a lot of fun for all involved, but that year-on-year the industry comes together to raise money that can make a real difference to people’s lives.” 

If you would like to take part in the Funds Industry Football Charity Shield, or would like to come along to support this event, please contact Eda Poreci at Calastone.
