Team Uform Gets Sporty For Thrombosis UK
Uform put their fitness to the test recently by organising and participating in a charity football match in order to raise funds for leading charity, Thrombosis UK.
Over 52 members of the Uform workforce formed 6 teams and played against each other at the nearby Meadowbank playing fields in Magherafelt, Mid Ulster. Thrombosis UK works to raise awareness of the risks, signs and symptoms of VTE (venous thromboembolism) and to support research into the prevention and best management of VTE.
The match was organised by Uform Senior Buyer, Michelle Doyle who commented, ‘We’re delighted to be able to support Thrombosis UK. Sadly, one of our fellow colleagues recently suffered a personal family tragedy as a result of a pulmonary embolism so we wanted to try and do something positive as a team to help support this hugely worthy cause. We’d like to give a special mention to Rocwell Natural Mineral Water for sponsoring the water bottles on the night and also for their generous donation. Thanks also to those team members who took part and in particular our colleague Niall McQuillan for co-ordinating the pitches & teams. We raised £400 which will go towards much needed research and awareness.’
