Everyone’s A Winner at Soccer Aid 2019

Jun 18, 2019

Soccer Aid 2019 England and World XI Coaches
The world’s biggest charity football match, Soccer Aid, kicked off at the weekend and what a fantastic event it was. Celebrities and football legends came together to ‘defend play for every child’, raising money and awareness for UNICEF UK. Everyone was a winner at Soccer Aid as a record-breaking £6.7 million was raised on the night!

A Huge Honour

We are extremely proud to have supported Soccer Aid for the 7th year. As part of our support we wrapped two of our VIP coaches in this years’ Soccer Aid livery. With two coaches jam-packed with famous faces, from the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, to Olympic Gold Medallist, Sir Mo Farah, the atmosphere on-board was electric to say the least. Along with our two fantastic drivers who represented our company exceptionally, Gary Smith (England) and Simon Martin (World XI).
