As football fever gripped Liverpool for the Champions League final, the Liverpool Regeneration Contractors Group hosted their inaugural charity football event in the city.
McLaughlin & Harvey was thrilled to be one of the 16 football loving construction firms who put their boots on in aid of the Cornerstone Foundation.
There are currently some 1,250 children in local authority care in Liverpool and some 4,000 young people who are described as being ‘on the edge of care.’ The money raised in the Liverpool tournament will help to fund a programme of activities, experiences and opportunities to nurture skills development, reward achievement and support care-leavers into training and work.
Iain Goldrein QC from the Cornerstone Foundation said,
“We are very grateful to the Liverpool Regeneration Contractors Group for their ongoing support, and to Business Fives for their support in what was a successful and enjoyable event. The amount raised will help to fund our organisation to develop a programme of activities, experiences and opportunities to nurture skills development, reward achievement and support care-leavers into training and work. The support of the LRCG is greatly appreciated.”
In preparation for the event and on the day, the 16 teams raised a fantastic total of £4,100 for the charity.
