At Birmingham City Football Club’s Player Awards, held at the ICC on Monday 6th May 2019, Eventmasters supported and raised funds for two chosen charities at the event for the 3rd year running. These charities were The Geoff Horsfield Foundation and Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid. A grand total of £1,500 was raised at the Player Awards evening and we were thrilled to present a cheque to the chosen charities, which will have the funds split between them.
The funds were secured through the kind support of the BCFC Members & guests whom we would like to thank dearly. Eventmasters is one of the UK’s leading and longest serving providers of corporate hospitality, with over 30 years of experience and we also make a number of charitable hospitality experiences available through our sister company, Silent Auction Events. Through the Eventmasters Foundation, our fundraising efforts aim to raise awareness and make long lasting positive change to all those impacted by the work of the charities we support.
The Geoff Horsfield Foundation, which was founded in 2016, aims to provide a measurable service with a sustainable impact on homelessness, vulnerability and its effect on the local community. The Foundation prides itself on providing quality, safe and secure housing accommodation for vulnerable adults who have fallen through the current support network.
Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid put women and children at the centre, by offering support to women and children affected by domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, FGM, and forced marriage. They challenge inequality and abuse that stem from a woman’s position in wider society and work closely with the police and housing agencies to ensure that women and children have the best outcomes.
Both are causes that make a hugely positive impact on many people’s lives.
Geoff Horsfield, Founder of The Geoff Horsfield Foundation said: “Great thank you to Eventmasters and BCFC for raising the monies as well as awareness for the Geoff Horsfield Foundation.”
Maureen Connolly, Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid stated: “Our partnership with BCFC Women’s Team has been an absolute pleasure and many of the team members have been fantastic at meeting with women and children in our services, playing footy in the refuge garden with the children, helping out at the charity shops and fundraising at their games. We were delighted to be one of the recipients from the Annual BCFC fundraiser and to receive £750 that makes a fantastic contribution to our services for women and children affected by domestic abuse. We look forwards to working together over the next year.”
We are privileged to have been able to support two incredible causes and only look forward to continuing and growing these efforts in the future.
Denise Sheasby, Managing Director of Eventmasters said: “Our third year of fund raising at the BCFC Awards, and the best one yet! Great thank you to all the Blues fans and their Support. KRO.”
