Kent businesses will be battling it out in a five-a-side charity football tournament in aid of Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance later this month.

Pearson Whiffin Recruitment Group has chosen the life-saving helicopter as its Charity of the Year and will be holding the fundraising event on June 22nd.

Managing director Rob Pearson said: “As part of our corporate social responsibility, we support a different charity each year and were looking for a Kent-based charity for 2013.

“When I looked into the Air Ambulance, I was shocked to learn that it has to raise £5million a year to keep both helicopters flying. It’s a charity that saves lives and one that we all could need one day, god forbid, so I decided to offer our support.”

The football tournament consists of 48 teams from Kent-based businesses and is to be held at Cobdown Sports and Social Club in Ditton, Aylesford.

For the third year running the main sponsor will be Maidstone-based Balreed, an independent, nationwide provider of print technology and managed print services.

Marketing & Events Coordinator Jodie Clarke said: “Balreed are pleased to be given the opportunity to support Pearson Whiffin and such a high profile local charity once again in 2013.

“As a Kent-based business, we are proud to be associated with this popular fundraising event.”
