The event was organised by Horwich Farrelly’s Charity & Social Committee as a way of raising vital funds for Rethink Mental Illness, the firm’s nominated charity for 2017. Seven teams were fielded by the firm with a further nine entrants from clients and suppliers.

The event, which was held at Powerleague Manchester on 29 November saw Horwich Farrelly’s Intelligence Services team, Intel Milan – captained by analyst Eddie Rothwell – crowned winners after defeating HCC Solicitors in a tense 5-3 final.

Thomas Reynard, Chief Operating Officer at Horwich Farrelly said, “Studies have repeatedly shown a link between exercise and good mental health so it was great to see many people come together for such an important cause.

“The tournament takes us a step closer to hitting our £15,000 fundraising target for 2017 and helps raise further awareness of the importance of looking after your physical and mental wellbeing. We’d like to thank everyone who took part in the tournament, in particular the organisers, our clients and suppliers and those who cheered on the teams from the stands.”

The evening was the latest in a series of fundraising initiatives organised by Horwich Farrelly and comes shortly after the firm announced a pioneering Mental Health First Aider programme. The final events, a series of festive fun runs taking place in Manchester and London this weekend, will further boost the fundraising total with the final amount to be revealed in the New Year.
