The Mayfair 5-a-Side Charity Football Tournament

The Mayfair 5-a-Side Charity Football Tournament

Last year here at Mayfair Fire & Security, we were arranging a football match with our sister company First County Monitoring and suddenly had an idea.

We thought why not see if other businesses in the area would like to take part and we could maybe raise some money for a local charity at the same time?

So, lo and behold, the creation of The Mayfair 5-a-Side Charity Football Tournament on 11am, Saturday 9th May at Selby College.

Our Chosen Charity – Sleepsafe Selby

We were talking in the office about how sport brings people together, whether it is the women’s football world cup, the rugby world cup or even watching the curling during the winter Olympics.

Sport has a knack of getting everyone to forget about their troubles and differences for a few hours and we can all cheer and boo during the exciting experience, instead of arguing with each other about Brexit, Big Brother or whose turn it is to put the bins out this week.

With that in mind, we also thought along with bringing people together in our local community, we could also give something back to a local charity.

Figures from Shelter show that there were an estimated 320,000 homeless people in the UK last year and if that wasn’t shocking enough, they also estimated that there would be 135,000 children in temporary accommodation during the Christmas period.

All if this helped us to decide that would donate the proceeds of our Mayfair 5-a-Side Charity Football Tournament to Sleepsafe Selby.

Sleepsafe Selby are a small group of volunteers dedicated to helping anybody who is struggling to find a home. Their inspirational idea is to “To to acquire a piece of land on the outskirts of Selby to set up our charity, we will be looking for local landowners / businesses or the council to help us achieve this.”

They will then turn a shipping container on the piece of land into a hub for the homeless that will provide a bed, a meal, warm clothes and washing facilities.

They hope to eventually have 5 homeless hubs that will be available from 5pm till 10am every day, to help encourage a daily routine and provide advice and guidance on finding a more permanent place to stay.

They are an entirely non-profit organisation that rely on donations and grants for funding. We are sure you will agree that it such a worthy cause to help those less privileged than us in our local community, especially during the long, cold winter months.
