Like the majority of the UK, this summer the Michael Anthony team thoroughly enjoyed supporting England in the UEFA Euro 2020 Championship. Even though England fell at the final hurdle, the Michael Anthony team was able to give back to the local communities off the back of England’s success thanks to our Golden Goals campaign.
What was the Golden Goals campaign?
We love any opportunity to give back to our local communities. Therefore, the Tring, Milton Keynes, Hemel Hempstead and Bletchley branches came up with an idea to donate 10 free footballs to a select group of local schools and sports clubs, for every England goal scored in the competition.
To decide which schools and sports clubs would receive the footballs, we asked the general public to nominate local schools and clubs which they felt deserved to be involved in our campaign. Once we had the shortlist of local schools and clubs, we held a quick social media poll to identify the order in which the clubs and schools would receive the footballs – and then we were ready for kick-off!
