Tyne Housing play at Newcastle Charity Football Tournament in aid of If U Care Share

Last month, staff from Tyne Housing took part in the annual Newcastle Charity Football Tournament (NCFT) organised by Sellick Partnership in aid of If U Care Share Foundation.

The five-a-side tournament, which took place at Powerleague Gateshead on Friday 7 July, saw seven of Tyne’s brilliant employees play against teams from several different local organisations.

Our team included: James Turley, Glenn Robson, Andrew Percival, Andrew Graham, Lucas Riley, Ryan Abraham and Steve O,Neill. They played seven games in total getting through to the quarterfinals.

Organised and hosted by Sellick Partnership, the tournament was in aid of If U Care Share Foundation, a charity that provides a range of services fundamental to its three main aims of prevention, intervention and supporting those bereaved by suicide.

Tyne holds a Continuing Excellence Better Health at Work Award, through which the entry was supported, with all funds going directly to If U Care Share.

Andrew Percival, Housing Manager at Tyne, said: “We had a fantastic afternoon at the tournament with Sellick Partnership and it was great to meet people from other local organisations while raising money for an incredibly important cause.

“Tyne’s mission is to help people get to a better place, and so our team were keen to take part and support the vital work If U Care Share does in the local community to help people and families dealing with mental health problems or those bereaved by suicide.”

Well done to our team for taking part in several rounds and qualifying for the knockout stages, and congratulations to this year’s cup winners, Karbon Homes, and this year’s plate winners, Womble Bond Dickinson.
