BPO specialist Webhelp UK has donated a total of £1300 to the Mental Health Foundation and the Bute Dialysis unit following a football challenge match between its employees in Falkirk and Rothesay.
The match was played at The Falkirk Stadium on Saturday May 26, home of Scottish Championship side, Falkirk Football Club; who kindly donated the use of the pitch completely free of charge for the day.
The idea to play the match came following a new Webhelp initiative, which aims to provide its employees with more encouragement and support to improve their physical and mental well-being; and to deliver greater health and happiness in the workplace.
Anton Manley, Chief Operating Officer at Webhelp UK, said: “Congratulations to our teams and everyone involved at both sites for such an impressive effort. They have raised a fantastic amount of money for two very worthy causes. It makes me feel very proud to have so many people within the business that selflessly spend their time planning and carrying out fundraising activities, not only for worthy causes in their local communities but also UK wide.
“A big thanks also goes to Falkirk Football club for allowing us to use their stadium and facilities on the day; an amazing gesture which has enabled us to boost the fundraising total even further.”
In a highly competitive but friendly match, the Webhelp Falkirk team beat their colleagues in Rothesay by six goals to nil. Although a strong score line for Falkirk, Rothesay did have some chances but unfortunately couldn’t convert them.
