Are you game?

From recruitment to events, growing market confidence has meant we have seen a busy 2014 so far - and the great news is that it doesn't appear to be slowing down at all!

As we move toward Quarter 4, we have more events to look forward to, from our adventure-filled company Teambuilding to the HfMA East Midlands NHS conference and our 3rd annual West Midlands Charity Football Tournament.

October 24th will also see our 4th annual East Midlands charity football tournament take place, which is getting bigger and better year after year, in aid of the award winning East Midlands based charity me&dee.   

Last year's event was a great success. With 22 teams entering, the winning cup champions were customer experience outsourcers Webhelp UK, who we have partnered up with this year, and Else Solicitors were worthy runners up. Ceva Logistics won the plate tournament, with Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust following closely in second place.

The Webhelp UK team is already training hard to retain their title as tournament winners! So are you game to take on the champions?

Webhelp UK team member, Anthony Moorhouse, commented on the day, "It was a great event with a large number of teams taking part - double the previous year, which shows that businesses are pulling together for such a great cause. We are really proud to be able to lift the trophy and hope to be able to return to defend the title next year and show our support for the charity.”

We are proud to hold this tournament year after year, which proves consistently popular amongst local organisations who are willing to rise to the challenge and show their support for our region's charities, such as me&dee.

If you had a loved one that was living with a life limiting or terminal condition, you'd want to make the time they had as special as possible. me&dee was formed to create special moments to ensure those children and adults enjoy and share distinctive experiences when time is short and precious.

The experiences have been many and varied, often arranged in a very short period of time, from hospice requests, such as weddings for terminally ill brides, meetings with Richard Hammond for a boy who has a condition so rare he is the only child in the world with it, to bedroom makeovers and birthday parties for Rainbows Hospice.

We want to raise as much money as we can for our chosen charity and need your help to make it happen!

The date of this year's event has been confirmed as Friday 24th October 2014. Running between 1.30 - 6pm, the tournament will take place at the Powerleague in Derby, for a small entry cost of £100 + VAT per team.

This includes an afternoon of competitive football followed by an awards ceremony and buffet, which has been kindly donated by Marketing Derby.

I do hope you will consider joining us to help with our goal to raise money for me&dee and of course have a great afternoon of networking and football.

So, who will be this year's East Midlands 5-a-side football champions? Watch this space!
