Staff from across Cordia kitted up and took to the pitch for our annual charity football match at Petershill Park. The event raised a massive £2000 for The Scarlett Fund for Yorkhill Children’s Hospital.
Four teams battled it out for the coveted Cordia Cup with former Rangers midfielder Charlie Miller joining a team in the semi-final. However, it was Cordia Thistle, made up of staff from across the company, who were crowned champions after a 4-2 victory in the final match.
David Melvin, managing director of Cordia, said: “Congratulations to the Cordia Thistle team and everyone who took part in last night’s exciting tournament.
“The Scarlett Fund is an excellent charity, carrying out work which is invaluable. We’re proud to support the organisation, helping to raise £2000 for children suffering from heart conditions.”
The Scarlett Fund was set up by the family of four-year-old Scarlett Dougan, who was born with the rare Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome (HRHS) - where the right side of the heart is underdeveloped - meaning her body was unable to pump enough blood to her lungs.
She will require lifelong monitoring and at least one more major operation in the next couple of years while at present, a heart transplant may be her only option in the long term.
