More than 3,800 members of staff from 475 pubs across the UK competed in Wetherspoon’s 10th annual Kick for CLIC Sargent football tournament.

The five-a-side tournament, which raised in excess of £386,000, was won by the team from Camperdown Place, in Glasgow, who beat the team from The Wibbas Down Inn, Wimbledon, in the final.

Each of the participating teams raised money for the charity through a range of events at their individual pubs.

Heats took place at 13 venues across the UK, including Bristol, Glasgow, Ipswich, Sheffield and Stoke.

Two teams from each of the heats went through to the final, which took place at Goals, in Wembley.

Camperdown Place’s manager, Allan Docherty, said: “The team performed brilliantly – and all of the other members of staff at the pub, as well as customers, are thrilled that they won the tournament.

“Staff and customers were very generous in supporting the team’s fundraising efforts for CLIC Sargent.”

CLIC Sargent’s campaign manager, India Lawton, said: “It is fantastic that a record number of pubs and staff took part in the fundraising tournament.

“This is the 10th Kick for CLIC Sargent football tournament – and Wetherspoon’s staff continue to support it with great enthusiasm.

“The company’s long-standing support for CLIC Sargent means that we can continue our vital work in supporting children and young people with cancer, and their families, across the UK.”
