HMV and Microsoft raise £19k for Teenage Cancer Trust

A charity 5-A-Side football event held by HMV and sponsored by Microsoft has raised £19k for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Sony Music emerged as the winners of the tournament, having come from two goals down to topple runners up OMD 4-3. Sony Music’s Ryan Slack was named as the player of the tournament.

“HMV is, of course, also hugely obliged to Microsoft, whose sponsorship and on-the-day support helps to make this annual event possible,” an HMV statement read.

“Over the years its value to us must have amounted to the best part of £200,000.  So huge and special thanks to them and to Samantha Earley and Marcus Toon in particular.”

Here’s the complete list of contributors to the event:

BBC Consumer Products (Greg Wilson), Bravado (Alex Mitchell), Faber (Clare Yates), House of Marley/HoMedics (Tim Joslin), Island Records (David Hawkes), Koch Media (Deane Punter/Steve Crisp), Libertine London (Will Wright/Emma Herridge), Lionsgate (Ben Grunbaum), MEDGE, Ministry of Sound (Rob Watson/Andy Pegler/Mark Findlay), Momentum Pictures (Rob Bentley/Neil Williams), Ninja Tune (Sam Upton/Darryl Defoe), Paramount Home Entertainment (Tony Glasscoe), Skullcandy (Henrik Anderson), Sony Music (Greg Lawton), Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (Mark Bowron), Teenage Cancer Trust (Laura Martin), Twentieth Century Fox (Chris Shiels/Richard Kinney/Kate Longbottom) Universal Pictures (Martin Nichols), Warner Bros.
