Fantastic football fundraising in France!

The REC (The Recruitment & Employment Confederation) Goals4Dolls challenge on June 28th was a spectacular fun themed sporting event all in aid of the fun and happiness charity, KidsOut. 

The Goals for Dolls is an annual football fundraising initiative that is held in Chandai, France by KidsOut supporter, REC. The aim of the game was to score as many goals as possible to raise funds for KidsOut. As the match was held during the World Cup, a Brazil 1982 theme was chosen. Pictured to the right are the players kitted out in 1982 Brazilian style kit and plenty of wigs. 

When asked why REC supports KidsOut they said; “The REC believes that each and every individual has the potential to make a difference to the world around them - especially in the area of work. Supporting a charity that helps disadvantaged children to broaden their horizons is an investment not only in the next generation, but also in our future workforce.” 

For three years the REC has supported KidsOut as their chosen charity by organising various fundraising initiatives like this. To give KidsOut an extra boost of support, one of their employees Steve Othen, recently took the position as an ambassador for KidsOut. In total, the REC has pledged to raise £40,000 for KidsOut. 

The football fun challenge has so far raised over £700 from the kind donations of supporters on the Goals4Dolls Just Giving page. We would like to thank all who donated and the REC for their continued fundraising efforts.
