Enra and MT Finance raise £20,000 in Christmas charity match

 

The seven-a-side game took place on Thursday 16 December with staff members from each lender. It was agreed that the losing team would split a £5,000 donation between each charity. 

However, the winning team decided to match the amount bringing the total donation from both lenders to £10,000. Additionally, a Just Giving page was set up to raise extra money and the total currently stands at £20,000. 

The match was won by Enra Finance with a score of 5-0. 

Danny Waters, CEO of Enra Specialist Finance, said: “As a business, we are committed to supporting a variety of charities through annual donations and fundraising activities. We decided it would be a good idea in the run up to Christmas to get together and enjoy some healthy competition in this football match while raising money for good causes. 

“Spread a Smile and Great Ormond Street Hospital are two fantastic charities that work closely together to help children and their families. It was a great match and people have been very generous in helping us raise an amazing amount of money so far.” 

Joshua Elash, director at MT Finance, added: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to raise a phenomenal amount of money for two amazing charities which are close to our heart. 

“A huge thanks to Danny Waters and the Enra Group for the game and also credit to the marketing teams at both companies who managed to turn a Thursday night football game into a hugely successful charitable event. We are very proud to have participated and look forward to a rematch.”
