A table tennis tournament, hosted by HSBC and held in their Grove Park, Enderby offices, has raised £3,000 for the Loros hospice.
70 people were on hand to witness the sixth annual tournament held by HSBC involving teams from a number of other financial and legal businesses, including Gateleys, Grant Thornton, Howes Percival, KPMG, Nelsons and Spearing Waite.
In all, sixteen teams of four players took part and £2,500 was raised from entry fees. The grand total of 3,000 was arrived at following the raffle of a signed rugby shirt.
Loros spokeswoman Laura Betts said the local charity was grateful for the support given by HSBC. As reported on the charity’s website, Laura said:
“Not only is this event getting bigger and bigger each year, but the tournament is also getting more and more competitive!
“There were some fantastic players participating in the tournament this year – some of the firms have really “upped their game”!
We are so grateful to HSBC for organising this event in aid of LOROS and for their dedicated support in terms of organising their own fundraising activities, attending LOROS events or offering corporate volunteers for specific projects their continued support is so valuable and so much appreciated!”
Graham Brown, senior international commercial manager at HSBC is reported as saying HSBC looked forward to working with Loros again very soon.
