Sellick Partnership actively supports the community through a number of sporting initiatives, including two established football leagues, a cricket league and a range of events throughout the UK. These events provide professionals with the chance to network and build relationships, all whilst enjoying the benefits of exercise!

The funds raised from our sporting events go to national and local charities such as St Ann’s Hospice, me&dee and The Lord’s Taverners, all of which Sellick Partnership has worked with for a number of years and enjoy strong relationships with.

Manchester Professionals’ Cricket League (MPCL)

Established in 2009 by Managing Director Jo Sellick, the Manchester Professionals’ Cricket League (MPCL) has now become a frequent fixture in the social calendar of professionals based in the area, providing them with an informal and fun platform to network.

We have forged an excellent relationship with The Lord’s Taverners cricket charity, which aims to enhance the lives of children with disabilities to participate in the sport. Having raised in excess of £20,000 for the charity, Jo Sellick was elected to the The Lord’s Taverners Committee in 2012. Funds raised from the MPCL also go towards St Ann’s Hospice, another charity with whom Sellick Partnership have developed a strong bond with over the years.

With games played from May to July culminating in our Finals day, the league has inspired individuals from over 50 firms to participate and continues to grow in popularity. If you would like to be involved in the league this year, please contact us.

MPCL Charity Awards Lunch 

Each year the league closes with a Charity Awards Lunch – a delicious three course meal and awards ceremony which is held at the fabulous Lowry Hotel each year. This exciting event provides the opportunity for us to raise as much money as possible for the MPCL chosen charities, The Lord’s Taverners and St Ann’s Hospice.

Each year, this event sees over 250 delegates from a variety of different companies come together for a day of networking and the chance to relax in an informal environment with their team, colleagues and other businesses from across Greater Manchester. We officially present the trophies to the winning teams, run a charity auction, and hear from some fantastic guest speakers. In the past we have heard from people such as Matthew Hoggard MBE, Bill Beaumont CBE, Geoff Miller OBE and Paul Allott. This year, for our 10th anniversary, we are delighted to welcome David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd and Paul Allott as our guest speakers.

This year we are holding the lunch on Friday 19 October 2018. To find out more information on attending the lunch, please email anna.williamson@sellickpartnership.co.uk and join the MPCL LinkedIn Group to keep up-to-date. 

                                

Midlands five-a-side Charity Football Tournament 

In addition to our two ongoing leagues, we also arrange an annual one-day football tournament for professionals based in the Midlands. This year marks our eighth annual Midlands five-a-side Charity Tournament in aid of me&dee. me&dee are an award-winning Midlands charity who organise holidays and trips away for individuals with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. 

Over the last seven years, the Midlands Charity Football Tournament has gone from strength-to-strength, hosting approximately 25 teams year-on-year, and we would love for you to be involved in our 2018 event. 
Teams are invited to join with a £120+VAT entry fee and proceeds will be donated to me&dee. The afternoon will include a buffet and an awards ceremony with prizes for the winning teams.

The day will be fun-filled and we expect a high level of competitiveness on the pitch. For further information or to book your place, please get in touch by calling 0161 834 1642 or email samantha.hattersley@sellickpartnership.co.uk.

                               

Manchester Professionals' Football League (MPFL)

The Manchester Professionals’ Football League (MPFL) is a five-a-side tournament that Sellick Partnership have been proud to run since 2011. 

With over 24 teams taking part each year from organisations across the city, the MPFL’s aim is to bring professionals together to network and socialise in a fun, active and competitive setting. Proceeds raised from the league are donated towards St Ann’s Hospice, Greater Manchester’s largest hospice catering for over 3,000 patients and their affected family members. 

The next MPFL is expected to take part in January 2019. Book your early bird place on the tournament.  

Here at Sellick Partnership, we actively encourage our people to be involved in all our charitable efforts; whether it is organising a bake sale or running a marathon, there is always something for everyone to get involved in to raise those all-important funds.
