Playing football, raising money for MS

Posted 05 Oct 2023   By Easton Bevins

Easton Bevins makes it to the semi-finals at the Bristol Business Fives tournament, and raises funds for Bristol & Avon Multiple Sclerosis Centre (BrAMS).

Easton Bevins recently played in a Business Fives charity football tournament at Goals, Bristol South. 

The tournament, the latest in a series, took place on a surprisingly hot day for the time of year. Eight companies played, competing for the coveted title of Bristol Champions, while at the same time raising funds for their chosen charity.

The Business Fives organisation works to unite companies, promote teamwork, and make a positive impact on charitable causes across the UK. A total of £2,552 was raised overall for various local and national charities.

Event Ambassador, Kerys Harrop was guest speaker at the event. A former defender for Birmingham City and Tottenham, Kerys shared some inspiring stories and insights from her football career, an excellent addition to an exciting day.

Easton Bevins's team was delighted to reach the semi-finals, despite a number of injuries, and raised money for Bristol & Avon Multiple Sclerosis Centre (BrAMS), their chosen charity of the year.

Nick Bastin, a building surveyor at Easton Bevins who played in the tournament, said: "This was our second year of entering Business Fives, and it’s a brilliant event and all for a great cause. The day is really well run, and the organisers do a fantastic job of keeping you involved with how the fixtures are set up. Sadly, the heat and a few injuries got the better of us on this occasion, but we'll be back next year to try and make the finals!"
