Castle Water, the UK’s leading independent business water retailer, servicing more than 350,000 business customers, has raised £470 for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), as part of the Business Fives Tayside charity football event.

The fundraiser kicked off at Soccer World in Dundee on Friday 25th February. Representing Castle Water, and raising money for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), was Team Castle Water. Overall, 18 teams from businesses across Tayside, Angus and Perthshire donned their kits to take part in the event and raise money for worthwhile causes.

The football tournament was a tiered system, with teams split into 'Champions League' and 'Europa League' sections after the opening round robin of fixtures. Most companies played between 6-9 games throughout the day.

Team Castle Water qualified through to the final, in a 3-1 semi-final victory against the team from MTC Media.

Team Castle Water's Team Captain, Mark Franchi said of the final, "E Q Accountants were our opponents in the final and with their younger, fitter players, they won 4-2. It was one game too many for Castle Water and we just didn’t have the legs to perform like we had in previous rounds. Massive congratulations to E Q Accountants, they thoroughly deserved their victory."

"It was a fantastic event, and very well organised. Players from all businesses were mixing and networking whilst promoting being active through playing football. There was a lot of excellent football on display and all played in good spirits and all for some brilliant causes."

In the lead up to the event, Castle Water employee's donated generously in support of Team Castle Water and SAMH, raising £470 for the charity. Overall, the Business Fives Tayside event raised over £10,000 for various local charities.
