Friendly rivalry raises money for Epilepsy Scotland
Hillcrest versus Kingdom Badminton Tournament raises funds for charity.
A team of Kingdom Housing Association staff played a badminton tournament against a team from Hillcrest and helped raise money for Kingdom’s nominated charity, Epilepsy Scotland.
The games took place over three hours in Glenrothes, with a lot of friendly competitive banter displayed between the teams.
Kingdom had the ‘home’ advantage for the tournament and won 31–25.
Bill Banks, Chief Executive from Kingdom, said:
“This is the first time the teams have played against each other, and everyone felt it had been a great success and are all looking forward to the next tournament later this year.”
Angela Linton, Group Chief Executive at Hillcrest, said:
“What a fabulous time we all had at the first ever Hillcrest versus Kingdom Badminton Tournament. In a very friendly, if fiercely competitive, afternoon, Hillcrest had to concede defeat on both the quality of our tops and our badminton abilities! Roll on the rematch in September.”
£220 was raised by the players for the charity.
