Travel will do battle this week to determine who can lay claim to the industry’s top football accolade.
Dolphin Dynamics will host its fifth annual five-a-side football tournament on Thursday (September 13), in aid of Just a Drop.
This year’s event will be contested at Rocks Lanes in Barnes, west London, and features TTG Media as the headline sponsor.
The TTG team will be competing against sides from across the travel industry, including Caribtours, Travel Nation, Trailfinders, Exodus Travel, Intrepid Travel, Do Something Different, Kirker Holidays and ATD Travel Services.
Chuck Richardson, Dolphin Dynamics managing director, said: “With more travel companies wanting to participate in the ‘Dolphin Fives’ than ever before, this event continues to grow and raise money and awareness for Just a Drop.
“I look forward to a fun evening in support of this remarkable charity and wonder whether Trailfinders will be able to defend their title against such strong competition.”
Brendan Hanlon, head of fundraising at Just a Drop, added: “Thank you to Dolphin Dynamics for your committed support of Just a Drop, and thank you to everyone who will be putting their football skills to the test.”
“There are still 844 million people globally who don’t have access to safe water, so we’re very grateful for your fundraising efforts which will support us to bring much needed safe water, hygiene and sanitation projects to communities across the world, transforming lives.”
The Just a Drop charity brings sustainable safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects to communities around the world.
The charity works with communities to implement solutions which best suit their needs, such as rainwater harvesting systems, wells, sand dams, water distribution systems, biosand filters, latrines, and sanitation and hygiene training.
To date, Just a Drop has reached more than 1.4 million people in 32 countries since they began in 1998.
