Ganymede participated in a tournament at St George’s Park on Friday 23 November to raise money for Cure Leukaemia.
The Copa Del CL tournament proved a fantastic success as Ganymede alongside other companies, fans and former players played the six-a-side tournament at the magnificent England training base. It proved hugely competitive, but also plenty of fun, as 16 teams battled it out for the coveted trophy.
The event included a range of former players including Ian Taylor, Lee Hendrie, Matt Le Tissier, Stiliyan Petrov, Darren Purse, Jody Craddock, Lee Naylor, Maik Taylor and Tommy Johnson, whilst Matt Murray and Geoff Thomas, a Patron of Cure Leukaemia, were among the team managers.
Oliver Wright, Operations Director at Ganymede, who played in the tournament said, “it was great to dust off the football boots and raise some valuable funds for Cure Leukaemia. Most people have unfortunately been touched by the disease in some way and the funds raised will go towards helping to find a cure for blood cancer.”
The ‘Anvillians’ were crowned overall champions so well done to them. A total of £20,000 has been raised by the event.
Cure Leukaemia is the blood cancer charity that was first established in 2002 by Professor Charlie Craddock. The charity is now one of the leading centres in the world for the development of new drug and transplant treatments for patients with blood cancers.
