The Fenwick Elliott Charity Cup 2019 took place on Friday 5th July 2019 in aid of IRT, taking place at Powerleague in Shoreditch. The five-a-side tournament featured seven budding teams made up of the law firm’s clients. The event is a fantastic annual fundraising initiative by Fenwick Elliott LLP, a highly respected London based law firm which specialises in construction and energy law.

The day was a huge success, with teams paying an entry fee to enter and all the proceeds kindly being donated to IRT. Despite the fierce competition on the pitch, the teams were able to enjoy pizza together afterwards. They were all competing for the prized trophies which were presented to both the winners and runners up at the end of the tournament. Our CEO, Steve Smith MBE, gave a fascinating speech preceding the prizegiving outlining the incredible work IRT undertakes, rebuilding the lives of refugees overseas.

IRT’s trustee Robbie McCrea is a Senior Associate at Fenwick Elliott and we are thrilled that this connection led to IRT being placed at the heart of the charity cup. Fundraising events like these help IRT to help even more refugees whose lives have been torn apart by war and conflict.

We would therefore like to give a massive thank you to Fenwick Elliott for putting on this wonderful event, the proceeds of which are really going to make a difference to our projects abroad. Mr Steven Smith MBE, CEO at IRT.
