Does your business have the skills & team spirit to be Scotland’s national Business Fives champions?

Posted: 19th July 2016

The housing and property heat of Scotland’s national business five-a-side tournament kicks off at the end of July with industry support from the Scottish Property Federation.

The heat has teams competing from companies like ESPC, Weslo HM, DJ Alexander, J & E Shepherd, Keepmoat, Wheatley Group, Castle Rock Edinvar and is taking place on 28th July at the Sighthill Powerleague in Edinburgh in association with industry partner the Scottish Property Federation.

David Melhuish, Director of SPF “we are delighted to support the Business 5’s housing and property heat. This is a great event supporting a crucial charity – if you are in the property industry and want to have some fun and do some good work, then get involved!’

The charity partner for the tournament is The Trussell Trust, which runs the UK’s largest network of foodbanks and supports some of the most vulnerable communities across Scotland.

As well as being a great networking opportunity for the housing and property sector Ian Esson, Scotland Partnership Coordinator for Business Fives charity partner, the Trussell Trust explained “We are delighted that Business Fives has chosen to partner with The Trussell Trust network of foodbanks in Scotland. These contributions will literally transform the lives of men, women and children across the whole of Scotland who are unable to put food on the table by ensuring we support our foodbanks well so they can support our communities well.”

Come along to the tournament and get the office buzzing with chat and some friendly rivalry before the tournament of the year.
