On October 2, the 1st “Big Mine” Charity Football Tournament took place at the School Complex no. 2 in Kielce. The idea of the tournament was to support charitable initiatives from our region. 4 teams representing employees from 4 departments of our company took part in the match. An additional player – our amazing fans gave this event an unforgettable atmosphere and persistently cheered on all teams.
Each team chose a charity goal that was supported with their game:
- 1st place – the “Biuro” team chose to support the “Krzyształki” Association for Intellectually Disabled Children, Youth and their families and the rehabilitation of Mr Paweł, who had an accident.
- 2nd place – the “Monolit Jaźwica” team (employees of the Jaźwica Mine in Chęciny) supported Oluś suffering from muscular dystrophy.
- 3rd place – the “NieWinni” team (employees of the Winna Mine in Łagów) played for the Occupational Therapy Workshops at the “Open Heart” Daily Stay House in Sędek. The money was spent on the purchase of rehabilitation equipment for its proteges – disabled people with a significant and moderate degree of disability from the area of four communes: Łagów, Bieliny, Nowa Słupia, Raków.
- 4th place – the “Galaktikos Laskowa” team (employees of the Laskowa Mine in Miedziana Góra) supported the 25th “Szczęśliwe Misie” scout group. The aid was provided for the purchase of uniforms, educational materials and the organization of camps.
Each team donated 10,000 PLN for its purpose.
The tournament turned out to be an initiative connecting local communities with our company. Simultaneously, it contributed to sports and social activation, as well as increased employees’ involvement in the Foundation’s activity.
