Denwa Communications organised a charity 5-a-side tournament here at Soccer Burnley on 26th February 2012, and raised a total of £4200 for the Rotary Club who are now distributing this money to local charities in the Burnley and Pendle area.
Soccer Burnley sponsored the event by charging no pitch hire fees and by skillfully planning the tournament knock out format to boot (we like to think we’re a good bunch). The successful tournament saw 16 local business teams fight their way through 4 group stages – similar to a champions league format albeit straight to semi finals and then the final. The worthy winners were Thorne Access & Security and the runners up were Mulderrigs Solicitors.
It was a great event all round and is looking like it just might be a regular calendar fixture! The ‘Player Of The Tournament’, Anil Joshai, walked away with a £20 i-Tunes voucher courtesy of Denwa Communications.
