TR team scores 4-2 win in charity football match for Papworth Hospital
A team of TR Fastenings (TR) footballers netted an impressive victory against The Brickmaker’s Arms ‘Blaggers’ from Ridgewood on 3rd December, in a match to raise funds for Papworth Hospital Charity.
Despite injuries leading to a depleted squad, TR’s 11 remaining players put up a good fight and the half-time score was 2-2. After the break, the TR team found their best form, dominating the game and winning the match 4-2.
TR’s European Distribution Account Manager, Nathan Parmar, arranged the game with his colleague Tom Ballan, as it was a specialist medical team at Papworth – a world-leading heart and lung hospital – which saved Nathan’s mother’s life with a double-lung and heart transplant in 2012. The opposition team from the Brickmaker’s Arms also held a number of football matches and music events throughout 2017 to raise money for Papworth.
The TR team consisted of:
Rob Le Cras
Goals for TR came from Ben Leppard who scored two, plus Alex Saunders and Ross Delmon who scored one each. Ross Delmon was awarded ‘Man of the Match’ and the game brought the overall total raised for Papworth by Nathan, his family, his colleagues at TR and The Brickmaker’s Arms to just under £4000.
Nathan comments: “After being told by one hospital that my Mum couldn’t be treated, the team at Papworth stepped in and performed the surgery which literally saved her life. We want to say thanks to everyone who played, supported us or donated to the cause at the match in December. It was a great day and to come away with a win on top of raising so much money was an added bonus!”

TR kicks off more fundraising for Papworth with charity football match
TR Fastenings (TR)’s European Distribution Account Manager, Nathan Parmar, is working with colleague Tom Ballan to hold a charity football match on 3rd December in order to raise funds for Papworth Hospital Charity. The cause is very dear to Nathan, as it was a specialist medical team at Papworth – a world-leading heart and lung hospital – who saved his mother’s life with a double-lung and heart transplant in 2012.
The TR team’s opposition will be The Brickmakers Arms ‘Blaggers’ from Ridgewood, who have themselves been raising money for Papworth all year with music events and football matches.
Nathan comments: “Exactly five years ago we were given the devastating news by one hospital that there was nothing they could do to save her, but the amazing team at Papworth stepped in and gave her another chance at life, which we are all so grateful for. We will continue holding events to raise money for this wonderful charity and are really looking forward to seeing how much support we can get for the match in December.”
