SmartSearch Show Their Class to Be Crowned Leeds Champions
Business Fives returned to Leeds for another sold out event. On the pitch there were 290 goals scored across 59 games with over £1,500 being raised for charity in the process.
Former Runners-Up and National Finalists, Evans Property Group, raised a terrific £300 for Martin House Hospice with Parallax raising £288 for MIND, another brilliant effort.
But it was Cloud Nine Hair who were the Top Fundraisers on the day, raising £460 for Saint Michael’s Hospice. A fantastic effort from the team.
