Parasol, the market-leading contractor support specialist is proud to match pound for pound the £100 grand prize donation made by Adam Hopcroft, Business Manager at Real Public Sector, a trading division of SThree Partnership LLP, after his win at the inaugural season of the Parasol Recruiter Fantasy Football League.
Hopcroft’s team, the 'Adam's Allstars' earned the top spot over the course of the 38-game Premier League schedule and following the win revealed he would donate the entirety of the £100 winnings to SOS Children’s Villages, a global charity partner of SThree.
Parasol Account Manager Steven Brogden was pleased to match the prize winnings and present the £100 donation to SOS Children's Villages in early June on behalf of Parasol and ClearSky.
"We're thrilled to be able to support such a great cause that truly benefits a lot of people. Hopcroft’s donation, sets the bar high for all future league winners and continues to further our commitment to support our charity initiatives. At Parasol, we strongly believe in the matters that concern the people and agencies we work with every day," says Brogden.
"A huge congratulations to Adam and his team for winning the Fantasy League. We're proud to host the league on behalf of the agencies and recruiters they we work with every day."
Hopcroft, Business Manager at Real Public Sector, is honoured to be able to donate what he can to such an incredible charity.
"As part of SThree's partnership with SOS Children's Villages we’re sponsoring a house in Zambia providing a home for seven orphans, funding scholarships for African students who grew up in SOS Children Villages and nurturing local partnerships with SOS Children in Germany and the US," Hopcroft says.
"Throughout the year, SThree plans a variety of initiatives to raise funds for SOS Children's Villages, which has allowed us to set ambitious fundraising targets, which we are on track to achieve as we raise £1 million in time for our 10 year partnership anniversary in December 2018."
Parasol gladly thanks all participants in the initial campaign of the Parasol Recruiter Fantasy Football League, and looks forward to the 2016-17 season, which will continue to feature continuous updates and a competitive season. For more information, visit the Parasol website.
