PR firms Spreckley and TUVA set for 16th June charity showdown. All money raised to be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and Action for Children
London PR outfits Spreckley and TUVA are set to battle it out on the football pitch later this month to support children and young people in need, both firms have announced today.
Whilst the match has been set up for a noble cause, both sides are expecting a fierce exhibition with plenty of footballing talent (or lack thereof) on display.
East London outfit Spreckley is delighted to be raising money for GOSH Charity, which supports seriously ill children treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
GOSH told Spreckley that the money raised will help fund the hospital’s most urgent needs. These include support services for children and their families, groundbreaking research into rare and complex conditions, state-of-the-art medical equipment and the essential rebuilding and refurbishment of hospital wards and buildings.
Spreckley captain and Junior Account Manager Lawrence Rosenberg said: “I’ve been excited to get a charity game set up for a while, so a massive thank you to the Spreckley and TUVA teams for making this happen. That said, no love will be lost on the football field, and as a Spurs fan, I could really do with winning a game. I might even bring a flare with me in case I score!”
On the opposing side, West London’s TUVA is equally excited to announce that their donations will be going to Action for Children, a UK children’s charity created to help vulnerable children, young people and their families.
Ken Deeks MBE, VP of Action for Children, said: “I’m delighted that Action for Children has been chosen by TUVA as its charity of choice for the upcoming football match. At a time when children have never needed our services more, we are truly grateful that TUVA is giving us the support that will help us to continue to be there for the most vulnerable people here in the UK.”
Jack Emsley, Senior Account Manager at TUVA, said: “I’m looking forward to a classic clash between the finest footballing talent West and East London PR firms have to offer (citation needed). The fact that two amazing charities that help support young people in need will benefit as a result is the icing on the cake, so a huge thank you to everyone who has donated – if this is a success, perhaps we will look to set up the first PR 5-a-side Super League.”
The match will take place in West London at Westway Sports Centre, Shepherd’s Bush, on the 16th June 2023. All donations are greatly appreciated, with links to the charity pages for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children here and Action for Children here. In a boost for neutrals, both sides have issued assurances that nobody intends on bottling a lead like Arsenal.
