Local recruiters raise money for Action for Children

Staff from Hays, the world's leading recruiting experts in qualified, professional and skilled people, in Crawley, hosted a five-a-side football tournament to raise money for its charity partner Action for Children. The tournament took place on the 2nd June 2010 at the K2 Leisure Centre in Crawley and Hays consultants raised over £1,800 for the charity.

Action for Children is one of the UK's largest children's charities working with over 156,000 children, young people and their families at around 420 projects across the UK. Action for Children is committed to transforming the lives of the most vulnerable children and young people, helping them break through injustice, deprivation and inequality so as they can achieve their full potential.

Chris Castle, Regional Director at Hays, comments: "We are proud to be able to raise such a substantial amount of money for such a worthy cause. We would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the event. Well done to the 1st Central team for winning."

The team from Haywards Heath based, First Central Insurance Management Limited, the service provider for online motor insurer 1st Central, won the tournament. Anne Cowland, Managing Director, commented: "We were delighted to offer our continued support to the event as it is for such a worthwhile cause and, of course, winning the tournament for a second year running was an added bonus."
