Business Team Building for Kangaroos Charity

Samantha Norgate, Business, Community and Events coordinator from Local disability charity Kangaroos is  excited to announce their next big fundraiser of the year and is seeking local businesses to take part in a fun football challenge.

In collaboration with local businesses, Kangaroos are organising an exciting 24 Hour Football Charity event on 23rd-24th June at the K2 Centre in Crawley with the goal of raising £24,000 in 24 hrs.

If, like many businesses, you’ve not been able to spend much time with each other, either at the office or at in person events, then this could be the event for you. Especially if you and your colleagues enjoy playing football.

The event will involve students from the Thomas Bennett Football Academy, run by Chris Jones (Academy Director), who plan to  play football for 24 hours against teams from local businesses from the Mid Sussex and Crawley area.  Businesses are being asked to buy a “package” to enable their team to play as part of this event. This is a great opportunity for businesses to pull their staff together in a great team building activity and at the same time raising funds for such a great charity. The event is open to absolutely everyone and if you don’t think you can quite manage a team, but are really keen to play, then the students of Thomas Bennett Football Academy can supplement a team.

If you are part of a business that would like to take part, please email the football fundraising team  email: for details of the sponsorship packages available.

Head to the Kangaroos website to their events section for more details and some great video footage of Kangaroos playing football.
