Workwear Island launches football match to raise money for Mountbatten Hospice

Uninspired by traditional networking events, Ellie Moore, founder of Workwear Island, decided to organise a get-together with a difference.

Promising fun for all ages, she has put together an enjoyable event that is a cross between a networking event and a fund-raiser.

On May 26, more than 40 local businesses will be taking part in a charity football match at Brading Town Football Club. All the players, bar one, are owners of local businesses. Anyone who fancies taking a pot shot at MP, Bob Seely, will have their chance – as he is one of the goalkeepers.

With gates open at mid-day, and kick-off at 2pm, there will be a DJ, inflatable football games for children, tasty hot food, and a well-stocked bar. As well as enjoying the atmosphere and a great game of football, those attending will be supporting the vital work of the Mountbatten Hospice, a charity close to Ellie’s heart.

She said: “I’m incredibly excited to host an event that not only celebrates our local business community but also gives back to an organisation that has played a significant role in my personal and professional life. I’m dedicated to making this day unforgettable for everyone involved.”

All are welcome at the event in return for a small donation and children go free.
