Staff and partner organisations from a Burnley housing company braved treacherous weather conditions to raise £700 at a charity football tournament

Ten teams made up of employees from different parts of social housing company Calico, as well as a guest team from Charter House, fought it out to reach the top of the table at the tournament, which took place at the Prairie Sports Village in Burnley.

After a series of nail-biting matches, it was Charter House who came out on top.

The team was presented with a trophy to celebrate their achievement.

Organised by Hannah Buckley from Calico’s Income Management team, the money raised from the tournament will go to One Brick at a Time.

This is a charitable organisation that provides skills exchanges between the developed and developing worlds, helping to address issues of poverty and education attainment. (s)
