Team National Sameday bids for the cup in charity football match!

A local charity football event took place on Saturday at Playfootball Luton raising funds for Prostate Cancer UK and a local charity who run the last remaining Youth centre in Luton helping 13-19 year olds through support, recreation and leisure.

The event saw a team of National Sameday employees take on a squad of transport industry professionals.  In preparation for the match, Dan Collen channeled his inner Gareth Southgate to assemble ‘Team National Sameday’, which included members of the operations and transport teams.

Partha Dey said “Our customers like to challenge us when it comes to their business requirements, so we thought we would return the favour by taking part in this charity football match. The team did National Sameday proud and even though the skills may not have been quite what you see in the World Cup but as a team we played an attractive attacking football, while raising money for good causes to continue their amazing work for the local community.  Well done to our team”.
