Bell Group swap painting colours for football colours to raise £2,600.00 for SSAFA

Bell Group’s Airdrie team are proud to have raised £2,600.00 recently, when they teamed up with CarillionAmey at the Excelsior Stadium for Armed Forces Charity SSAFA.

The firms hosted a five-a-side football tournament and fun day at New Broomfield, in support of Armed Forces Charity SSAFA.

The turnout was brilliant! 16 teams all competed for the trophy, including teams from our Airdrie, Kirkcaldy, Edinburgh and Aberdeen branches! It ended up being Bell Group final, Airdrie vs Kirkcaldy, with Kirkcaldy taking the win!

The event also included children’s events including a bouncy castle, face painter, balloon modelling, cupcake decorating and space hopper races, as well as visits from the emergency services.

Participants raised a grand total of £2,600.00, more than double their original goal in support of the charity!

Organisers Paul Arnott of Bell Group and John Campbell of CarillionAmey thanked all of those that supported the event, saying: “It was a resounding success, reflected in the contribution made to SSAFA for their excellent work.”
