Nationwide Hire Limited is hosting its first Charity Shield football tournament on Saturday 12 May at Goals Soccer Centre in Portsmouth to raise funds for its chosen local charity, The Moving On Project.

Lee Fisher is HR and Training Manager at Nationwide Hire Limited and a Director at the charity and explains, “The Moving On Project offers free, confidential counselling for young people from 11 to 25 years old in the Fareham and Gosport areas faced with issues affecting their education and progression into adult life.

Staff have raised almost £7,000 so far this year to help this worthwhile charity to support young people locally through the work of the project and the counselling process. Our target is to raise £10,000 by August 2018 and we’re hoping that our Charity Shield event will help us top that.

Nationwide Hire Limited is inviting teams of 7 to sign up and make a £100 team charity donation to take part in a 5-a-side tournament. As well as over 3 hours of play per team, this will be a great family fun day out with bouncy castle, games, a hog roast and raffle. The event is free to attend and watch.

Raffle prizes generously donated so far include signed pictures of Kriss Akabusi, Becky Adlington, Chris Waddle and Tim Henman, and an Arsenal puma soccer ball donated by Sports Direct, a signed Pompey Ball donated by Portsmouth Football Club and two complimentary children’s tickets donated by Marwell Zoo.

There’s even free training in the run up to help team players get in shape.
