The event is organised to support the UK-based organisation Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT), reveled in April as the the company’s partner charity for 2019.
Deltatre’s clients and partners will meet Deltatre and Massive staff for an evening of five-a-side football and to support fundraising for the CHECT. Teams will turn out from ITV, Premier League, EA Sports, ATP Media, European Tour, PLP/IMG, Perform and Two Circles.
The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust is a growing charity that helps children suggering from Retinoblastoma - a condition that affects vision from birth all the way through to adulthood. In the video and streaming space, everything we do is about sight, so supporting CHECT feels like a great way for Deltatre to support children who are growing up in a world with ever-increasing visual stimulation.
The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust's Chief Executive, Patrick Tonks, said:
As a small charity it is always a challenge to raise the funds necessary to undertake our work helping babies, young children and families affected by quite a rare cancer called Retinoblastoma. To everyone taking part in what I am sure will be an amazing football tournament – thank you for your support. I hope you have fun, enjoy some friendly competition and do so knowing that every penny raised will be put to good use helping a very special group of people. See you on Thursday!
Tony Page, Deltatre President EMEA, said:
This year’s football tournament is just one of several important activities where Deltatre is working to support the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust. Our staff cycled through London on a Saturday night last month in aid of CHECT, and now we look forward to welcoming our clients for such a meaningful fundraising sports event. Together, we can make a big difference by helping the organisation raise vital funds for research and support. This will make a positive impact on children who suffer from Retinoblastoma and their families.
