Two worthy charities benefited from the event - £1,340 was donated to the Portishead Junior Football Club to help them with their work with local youngsters, while £4,020 was given to The Meningitis Research Foundation which funds research to prevent meningitis and septicaemia, improve survival rates and outcomes, promote education and awareness to reduce death and disability, and give support to people affected by the disease.
The cheques were presented by John Wormald, Regional Director for Capita Symonds, to John Shaddick, Chairman of Portishead Junior Football Club, who was accompanied by a number of the club’s players. Emily Waller represented the Meningitis Research Foundation.
Capita Symonds has played a key role on a number of major projects in the area in recent years, including Merchants’ Academy, Cabot Circus, Oasis Academy Bristol, SS Great Britain and Bristol University.
