Sibling rivalries are usually a nightmare for most parents, but this one was one worth celebrating and being proud of, as our Sales and Marketing Consultant Debbie Quaile and brother Michael, went head to head at Vale Park their annual football match to raise money for dementia charities.
Debbie joined the Vale's Commercial and Marketing department in July, and has been organising and playing in the 'The Quaile Cup' for three years. The charity match has previously raised funds for the Royal Stoke University Hospital’s premature baby unit and the Fire Fighters Charity.
This years match was all about raising funds for dementia charities and it raised a fantastic £1,200. The money was split three ways, with £900 going to the Alzheimer’s Society, £200 to Approach Staffordshire and £100 to WIlbraham House.
Debbie was delighted with how the day went and was pleased to able to raise so much money for the charities.
“Alzheimer’s has impacted on a number of our family and friends and it seemed only right that this was our chosen charity in recognition of the support these charities provide to those suffering from this horrendous disease.
“Once again the day was a great success enjoyed by all who participated and supported the event. We would like to express our thanks to everyone involved in making it happen with particular thanks to the chairman and staff at Port Vale for use of the facilities, Michael Smith the photographer and Olivia Mae Shipley for the entertainment.”
