What has been keeping us so busy?

Our clients, of course!

Last weekend we saw the positive results of many months of planning and organising of a client event.

Local charitable trust, the Moore Foundation, utilised our event management services for the second year running to bring a celebrity and legends football match to Altrincham Football Club to help them to raise the profile of their organisation and raise vital funds for the beneficiaries!

Despite the early morning rain and the grey clouds, people came out to show their support for the two teams and enjoyed a great afternoon of football, fun and banter. Even the Mayor of Trafford, Councillor Dylan Butt, turned out to open the event and meet the players and charity representatives on the pitch.

Compered by the very talented and hilarious Alan Keegan (Manchester United stadium announcer) the event brought together football legends including former Manchester United stars Clayton Blackmore, Lee Martin (a patron of the charity), Arthur Albiston, Sammy McIlroy and Frank Stapleton, as well as former Manchester City goalkeeper, Eric Nixon, and current Stalybridge Celtic player Charlie Ennis.

We organised and arranged every aspect of the event from start to finish including sourcing and booking the venue and players, organising catering, sourcing raffle prizes and generating other streams of fundraising, promotion, press and radio coverage, artwork design and print management, as well as arranging branded equipment, running a social media campaign, arranging travel and transportation and delivering a full event service on the day.

Nigel Garner, Chairman of the Moore Foundation says “The event has been so well received and supported by the many players, our champions, local and affiliated businesses, as well as those associated with Altrincham FC. The match was so exciting and fun to watch with the quick wit of Alan Keegan, and we’ve been overwhelmed with the media and public support we have received in the run up to the game.”

The score at the end of the day was 6-5 to the legends, who managed to win the trophy back from the celebrities. Some great football was seen on the day and vital funds were raised for this extremely worthy charity.

Only a few days after the event, talk has already turned to next year’s match, and we look forward to bringing you more news about that as it happens.
