We’d like to say a big thank you to our corporate partner TELSTRA UK for organising a 5-a-side football tournament for their employees in aid of Hope for the Young on Thursday 2nd August.
Hope for the Young also entered a team and whilst England might not have won the World Cup this year, our young people similarly showed impressive football skills and determination, to get through to the semi-finals!
Fundraising events like these have a big impact on us being able to support more young people in need. One of the refugees we helped, who was not able to attend the football tournament, sent us a message saying: “I am so very sorry for not being able to meet you today, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. Over the years Hope for the Young has been – very literally – the only hope for many vulnerable young people who have nowhere else to turn to. The support provided by you has helped many young people (including myself) to survive extremely difficult episodes of their lives.”
If you or your company would like to organise a fundraising event like this, please get in touch with Matt.
