Walker Laird were proud to take part in a charity football tournament which was hosted by Rutherford Cross in order to raise money for SAMH, the nation’s leading mental health charity. It was an excellent team-bonding event fuelled by competitive spirit and we’ve managed to raise over a whopping £1,000 in donations so far! The tournament took place at Powerleague, Townhead in Glasgow and was a brilliant way for Michael Wilson, his colleagues and friends to unwind from the office and interact with the other companies participating in the tournament.
The event was extremely well organised by the Rutherford Cross team, it was great to see such enthusiasm not only amongst all the teams participating, but the supporters that came along and helped give the players that little extra “kick”, allowing us to reach the semi-final in the tournament!
Walker Laird were delighted to contribute towards such a worthy cause along with the other companies: Clydesdale Bank, AJ Gallagher Insurance, Maxim, Dawnfresh, City Facilities, Wright Johnston MacKenzie, Keepmoat, French Duncan, First Milk and Harper MacLeod.
Congratulations to the winning team, AJ Gallagher Insurance. Walker Laird will be back training soon to hopefully reach the final next year!
