TR kicks off more fundraising for Papworth with charity football match

TR Fastenings (TR)’s European Distribution Account Manager, Nathan Parmar, is working with colleague Tom Ballan to hold a charity football match on 3rd December in order to raise funds for Papworth Hospital Charity. The cause is very dear to Nathan, as it was a specialist medical team at Papworth – a world-leading heart and lung hospital – who saved his mother’s life with a double-lung and heart transplant in 2012.

The TR team’s opposition will be The Brickmakers Arms ‘Blaggers’ from Ridgewood, who have themselves been raising money for Papworth all year with music events and football matches.
Back in March of this year, Nathan Parmar organised a team of TR colleagues and family to run the Hastings Half Marathon, in which they smashed their target by raising over £2,100. TR employees who wish to join in with the fundraiser and play at the match can contact Nathan Parmar or a member of the TR marketing team.
Nathan comments: “Exactly five years ago we were given the devastating news by one hospital that there was nothing they could do to save her, but the amazing team at Papworth stepped in and gave her another chance at life, which we are all so grateful for. We will continue holding events to raise money for this wonderful charity and are really looking forward to seeing how much support we can get for the match in December.”
