A charity football match organised by HealthTrust Europe (HTE) has raised over £1,000 for Mind, the company’s chosen charity for 2019.
HTE is supporting the mental health organisation as part of the company’s commitment to the care and improvement of human life.
HTE colleagues faced a team from Kingswinford-based Altodigital in the friendly match which took place at the University of Birmingham on Thursday 25th April. Altodigital, is the largest independent supplier of office technology in the UK and has recently entered into a new partnership with HTE to supply document services to CoreTrust Europe, a subsidiary of HealthTrust Europe.
Despite a close second half Altodigital won 3-2. Dennis Robb, CEO of HealthTrust Europe said: “Altodigital were commendable opponents and I would like to praise them on their win.
“I am delighted that colleagues supported our chosen charity for 2019 by both playing on the night and making donations. The effort made exemplifies HealthTrust Europe’s mission to improve healthcare in the communities we serve.
“This is just the first of this year’s events HealthTrust Europe has planned to raise money for Mind and support the wonderful work they do.”
Following the game, Tim Hubbard, Corporate Business Development Director for Altodigital and team captain, said: “We really enjoyed playing against our new client. It was definitely competitive as we’re two companies used to success and winning, but ultimately all the players are delighted that we have managed to raise over £1,000 for Mind and support the fantastic work that it does.”
HTE has set up a JustGiving page for 2019 to help it collect donations for Mind during the year.
