Hays Recruitment hosts Essex charity football event

Construction companies from Essex battled it out on the football pitch for charity, last week. The 12 companies, including Barratt Homes, E J Taylor, Chelmsford Borough Council and Weston Homes, competed in a tournament on the 9th April 2010 at Future Soccer, based at Sandon School near Chelmsford. The event, which was sponsored by Hays Construction, the leading recruiting expert, saw five-a-side teamsraising money for, Essex charity, Little Havens Children's Hospice. Morgan Ashurst, who is currently involved in the construction of the Basildon Sporting Village, was crowned the winning team.

Little Havens is a registered charity and is the children's hospice for the whole of Essex and outer parts of London. Parents and siblings benefit immeasurably from the home-from-home environment, in which they can take a break from the strain of constant care, and concentrate on being a family.

Andrew Fowler, Senior Manager at Hays Construction, comments: "The tournament was a great success, raising in excess of £800. The weather was excellent it was great to see so many Essex construction companies coming together for some friendly rivalry, whilst raising money for such a worthy cause. My congratulations go out to the winners from Morgan Ashurst".
