Process cooling experts, IsoCool, and manufacturer, M&H plastics, went head-to-head in a charity football match to raise money for children’s charity, Batten Disease Family Association.
The match that took place at Carrow Road stadium, Norwich, resulted in a 4-3 win for IsoCool, however both companies scored a major goal by raising £2,274 for the charity.
Nigel Hallett, Managing Director of IsoCool, said: “Everyone was a winner at this game – we all had a brilliant time and there was a great atmosphere between the two teams.
“We’re really pleased to have been able to raise money for such a good cause, plus it was a real treat to play in the same stadium as the Norwich Canaries!” he added.
Kevin Pennington, Technical Director of M&H Plastics, said: “It was a fantastic football match, with a real sense of team spirit, and it was all the more satisfying knowing that we raised £2,274 for the charity.
“The match might be over, but we’d love the donations to keep coming so we can help provide the affected families with the opportunity for a happier life,” he concluded.
The funds raised will help heighten awareness and facilitate research for Batten disease, where children are apparently born healthy, but quickly develop epilepsy, before losing their sight, speech, cognitive and motor abilities, often passing away between the ages of 5 and 30.
