Businesses from Watford and Luton have raised £7,000 for The Homeless World Cup during a charity football tournament.

Ten teams made up of staff from eight firms and their families took part in the tournament at Venue 360 in Luton and saw KPMG of Clarendon Road, Watford, lift the winner’s trophy.

They beat teams from ProCom Connections, Unicut Precision and energy consultants 001 Limited before meeting hosts Monarch All Stars 6-1 in the final. In addition to the football, families were treated to face-paint stalls, bouncy castles and a raffle where prizes included a box at Old Trafford for a Champions League game and mini-breaks to Madeira and the Algarve.

Senior partner for KPMG in Watford Peter Selvey said: "We are obviously delighted to have won this tournament and the cup is pride of place in our office in Clarendon Road.

" I would like to thank Monarch for laying on a great event, all of the people that took part, and their families for supporting them on what was a very warm, yet totally enjoyable day."
