It’s an HCP hat trick!

Congratulations to Andrew Crossland, Terrie Bedford and Sarah Sibbald for another successful primary schools football tournament.

The first of its kind at HCP, the Give Your Time primary school football tournament just got bigger.

Led by HCP Operations Manager Andrew Crossland, Project Assistant Terrie Bedford and supported by General Manager Sarah Sibbald, this year’s football event brought three separate projects together to compete for the coveted prize of overall champion and take the Winners’ Cup.

Twelve primary schools representing Leeds, Barnsley and Swarcliffe Estate Schools were all battling it out in a five-a-side tournament.

Lacewood (Barnsley), defending their title were crowned overall winners again with East Ardsley (Leeds), challenging them in the final.

A massive thank you to MSBL, QED Leeds, Yorkshire Transformations, ENGIE, Pinnacle, Yorkshire Housing, NPS Barnsley, BMBC and ISS Catering for their time and contribution to making this year’s event so special for the children.

Schools and parents were bowled over at the generosity of organiser and suppliers.  The facilities and the food were amazing.

Some of the many quotes and emails from the event:

“This was the best and biggest event that I’ve ever attended.  I cannot thank you enough for what you have provided the children, it is absolutely outstanding”.

Mr Sidebottom from host school Joseph Locke Primary​

The children have been so excited to attend and it was everything we could have imagined and more. Thank you so much for giving our school the opportunity to attend such an amazing event”.

Mrs Joy Slinger from Swarcliffe Estate Primary school​

Kevin Precious from BMBC thanked HCP for their excellent organising of the event and expressed his delight with the schools that participated and the sportsmanship from all who attended:

“The children participating were fantastic ambassadors and a credit to their respective schools, win or lose it was great to see the camaraderie and sportsmanship from everyone”.
