On Saturday 28th May 2016, Coastline organised a 5-a-side football tournament in aim to raise money and awareness for The Stroke Association.
The tournament took place at Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club on the all-weather pitches where we welcomed family, friends, companies and organisations to come along and enjoy the day in aid of a fantastic charity. Overall, eight teams signed up to the tournament including Gaia, Bluechip Warranty, Knights Lowe, Manchetts, Stormafit and of course our very own Coastline teams! Each team were provided with custom football kits courtesy of Bluechip Warranty.
The weather stayed out lovely for the day and our supporters enjoyed a number of activities such as a Bouncy Castle, Raffle, Face Painting and Penalty Shootouts as well as cheering their favourite teams on throughout the afternoon. We had a number of kind donations for prizes and sponsorships which helped make the event such a success.
A very close final, however a massive congratulations goes to team Gaia who won the tournament receiving the 2016 Coastline trophy!
A huge thank you goes out to everyone that got involved with the event, helping to raise so far a total of £1,030 – exceeding our target! Donations can be made to our Just Giving page or by texting CLGR66 £5 to 70070.
