Support for SASH in charity game

27th June 2019

The rain poured down at Bootham Crescent as property developers The Helmsley Group took on Langleys Solicitors in a charity football match on Tuesday night. 

The game was organised in conjunction with York City Football Club to raise money and awareness for local charity SASH.

SASH is a youth homelessness charity that works across York and North and East Yorkshire and supports young people aged 16-25 who are facing homelessness.

Despite the wet weather, over 70 supporters gathered to enjoy the game and the Bootham Crescent facilities.

The game started positively with both sides passing the ball around nicely and creating some good chances, with The Helmsley Group taking advantage and going into half-time winning 1-0.

The tables turned in the second half with Langleys Solicitors scoring four unanswered goals before a consolation from The Helmsley Group saw the match end 4-3 to Langleys Solicitors.

Candice Robertshaw, Associate Director at The Helmsley Group, commented: “We raised over £350 from the match which is fantastic and just one of the initiatives The Helmsley Group is involved in to help SASH continue their incredible work in York and across North Yorkshire.”

James Bradley, Senior Associate at Langleys Solicitors, commented: “It was a great experience to play at Bootham Crescent prior to the move to the Community Stadium. We are delighted to have raised funds for the local charity SASH.”

The charity match was just one of the pitch bookings that Bootham Crescent has hosted this summer.

Chris Pegg, Commercial Manager at York City Football Club, commented “It has been a pleasure to welcome 30+ bookings and 1000+ players onto the Bootham Crescent pitch this summer – they have been a huge success, in commercial terms, as well as engaging with businesses and fans alike."
