TF Solutions scores £5k for charity

Andy Cherrill, director at TF Solutions presents the £5,000 cheque to Lisa Courtney from the Donna Louise Trust

UK: A football tournament organised by air conditioning and refrigeration distributor TF Solutions has raised almost £5,000 for a childrens’ charity.

The event at the FA’s  national football centre in Burton-upon-Trent, saw TF Solutions – the self-titled Ice Men – teaming up with Fujitsu General UK to host the event. Other sponsors included Pump House, Lawton Tubes, National Refrigerants, Aspen Pumps, Armacell, J&E Hall and Cable World.

Over 70 guests were invited to take part in the football tournament itself, which saw players battle it out in a ten team, five-a-side format.

The day culminated with a charity auction dinner at the on-site Hilton Hotel, with former Premier League referee Jeff Winter providing the evening’s entertainment. 

Andy Cherrill, director at TF Solutions, said of the tournament: “It was a fantastic day with some really competitive games played for a very worthy cause.

“This was the second time we’ve hosted a football tournament at St George’s Park, and once again we were delighted with how the matches played out and the effort put in by customers, suppliers and colleagues alike.”

All proceeds went to the Donna Louise Trust which provides palliative care for children and young people. Last year, TF Solutions partnered with Fujitsu General UK and Lawton Tubes to donate a £30k air conditioning system to the hospice, and previous fund-raising efforts have seen The Ice Men conquer Mount Snowdon and take on the Three Peaks Challenge.

“The Donna Louise Trust does a wonderful job in providing care to children with life-limiting conditions as well as much needed support for their families,” explained Andy Cherrill.

“We’ve been privileged to work closely with the Trust for many years now, and we’re pleased to see how the funds raised from the charity football tournament will go some way to helping this great cause.”
