Watson Buckle raises hundreds for The Cellar Trust at Bradford Business Fives football tournament

Accountancy firm Watson Buckle are celebrating after their team helped to raise almost £350 for charity at the Bradford Business Fives football tournament. 

The Business Fives event on 10 March saw 17 local businesses compete against each other to raise money for their nominated charity. 

Watson Buckle, playing for its charity of the year The Cellar Trust, helped push the grand fundraising total for the event to £2,720. 

More than 45 short, five-minute matches were played in total by the various teams and over 160 goals were scored at this fundraising event. 

Watson Buckle played well, reaching the top of their group, but missed making the semi-final after being knocked out.

Nevertheless, the team were delighted to have taken part and raised £345 for their chosen charity. 

The Cellar Trust is a registered mental health charity that supports people across the Bradford district with mental health problems – helping them move forward in their recovery and enjoy independent, fulfilling lives.

Speaking about the team’s success, Watson Buckle’s Managing Director, Mark Wilcock, said: “Although we did not come home with a trophy, we were all delighted to have raised money for our chosen charity.”

“This was our first big fundraiser of 2022, and we have many more events and sponsorship planned throughout the year, hopefully raising lots more money for this great local mental health charity.”

“Big thanks to those who participated and played their heart out match after match, as well as those who donated so generously to our charity.”
