A ‘select’ Mirka squad, managed by Paul North, Mirka’s national accounts BDM took on Volvo’s Steve Plunkett ‘Plunky Allstars’ in a tight match which saw the latter come out 3-2 victors.
The event which, post-match, was announced as an annual occurance, included the match itself along with a fish and chip supper, prize giving and fundraising raffle.
Speaking at the event, Paul thanked everyone for their support and heaped praise on the behind-the-scenes organisation in making the event a success. ‘We are delighted that along with the support of our industry colleagues, friends and partners we have raised a significant amount of money for a very worthy cause: The Willen Hospice – a charity partner of Mirka UK.
‘The game was played in great spirit and fitting for such a fabulous venue. We’re already looking forward to returning next year – this time hopefully to get the win.’
