Team Emergo kicked off the Easter weekend with our fundraising event to help raise money for Ukraine. These last couple of months Emergo employees have been working day and night to set up a charity football match. We teamed up with one of our clients Snodland Town FC who was kind enough to host the event.
It was an exciting time for our company as we also launched our new online ordering product Go Eat! We used our Go Eat platform to quickly create a website that was simple and easy to use. We could sell tickets to the match, sell our raffle tickets and football gear that the Snodland Football Club had on offer!
Our online ordering platform meant we could provide access to anyone who wanted to donate to the event and give to the Ukraine appeal.
To raise funds for Ukraine, raffle tickets were sold throughout the club grounds, so it was convenient that Snodland Town FC had handheld terminals so that they could accept payments for the tickets everywhere.
Hats off to Katy and Nina, who work in our operations department for organising the event, and thank you to all of the Emergo employees who volunteered their help at the match. Emergo team members managed to sell additional raffle tickets to spectators all over the club thanks to also bringing with them our handheld EPOS device.
The football match itself saw ex-pro footballers Clinton Morrison, David Howells, Ruel Fox, Perry Groves, and Jody Morris play for the Emergo team. Well over 1000 spectators turned up at Snodland Town FC to help us raise £6210.
The Football Drop, a football dedicated podcast also covered the event. You can listen to the episode here.
We would like to thank the Snodland Town FC, all the players that got involved, our colleagues, friends, and family who came to support the event, and everyone else who showed up and helped us raise over £6000 for the Ukraine appeal.
