Two commercial refrigeration specialists went head to head in a charity football match to raise funds for the children’s ward at their local hospital on Saturday 5th August.
Employees from Williams Refrigeration and Foster Refrigerator, both based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk took part in the match and so far over £1,500 has been raised for Rudham Children’s Ward at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn.
Teresa Coe, Lead Nurse of Paediatrics at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital said: “We are very grateful that Fosters and Williams decided to come together to raise money for Rudham Ward. The money donated is really appreciated and will go to great use on the Ward.”
Martin Laws, Marketing Manager at Williams Refrigeration said: “We’re so pleased with the performance our team gave and well played to the Foster squad. Even more importantly, we’re over the moon about how much money we’ve raised. Donations have come in thick and fast, and being able to collect so much for a cause close to our hearts is a fantastic achievement – thank you everyone who got involved.”
Nick Bamber, Head of Marketing at Foster Refrigerator went on to say: “Despite the traditional English summer weather the crowds came out in force! This just goes to show how important the hospital is to our local community. We want to thank everyone who came along to cheer on the teams, as well as with everyone who has donated to this fantastic cause. And of course, Williams for a great match.”
Despite the weather, crowds gathered to support the two local companies, which saw Foster going on to win the match 6-1. If anyone would like to donate further they can visit the JustGiving page.
