The two teams went head-to-head in the match at Brighton & Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium last week, with the subcontractors securing a 3 – 2 win in the 86th minute. 

The CALA team, which was made up of employees from all departments including Quantity Surveyors, Site Managers and Land Agents, met its subcontractors – including PGL Contractors Ltd, Foxdown Construction Ltd and R&A Roofing Ltd – in a friendly match, designed to raise funds for CALA’s long-term charity partner, The Prince’s Trust. A raffle and auction took place following the match, with items including a five-night stay in Bulgaria, dinner for two at the exclusive Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard and a luxury overnight spa break. 

Rebecca Perry, CSR Manager at CALA Homes, said: “The work that The Prince’s Trust does in the community is invaluable, and we’re delighted to donate over £8,000 from this fun event to support in helping disadvantaged young people build a better future. Each year, CALA commits to raising funds for The Trust and we’re delighted to see our colleagues embracing the partnership so fully and committing their time and efforts into putting on such a brilliant event.” 

Olivia Jeffery, Corporate Partnerships Manager at The Prince’s Trust, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the efforts from the team who had organised such a brilliant event that raised vital funds for the work of The Trust. Since partnering with us in 2016, CALA employees across the UK have raised over £170,000 through fundraising which is just remarkable. It’s because of partners like CALA, The Trust is able to help more young people to overcome barriers they may face to get into work, education or training for them then to be able to create a future they can be proud of.”
