Back in January I had the idea of making money for the charities we work closest with,: Shrewsbury Town in the community and Hope house. We arranged to meet up as we thought as a way of getting people together to make money for charity, who could turn down a game of bubble football?!
We were able to successfully contact our friends at The Shrewsbury Club who were happy to offer us free use of their facilities to host the event, and free guest passes to all players and supporters....how could anyone resist?! Shrewsbury Town were able to offer various club merchandise for all players, and even complimentary home game tickets to the lucky 5 winners.
We have lots of requests to bring our bubble football to different charities for free so we wanted to make sure that this one event got our full attention. We made sure the chosen charities were able to make the most of the event, with every penny raised going to Shrewsbury Town in the community and Hope house.
What we weren't sure about was the standard of play - you never are with bubble football! But it turned out to be extremely entertaining with lots of oohs and aahs from the supporters. And if I ever find out the name of one of the goalies.....well, all I can say is that he was like a cat in between those sticks!
Well done to the eventual winners and we look forward to building on the success for next years tournament.
