The Creative Cup, an annual 5-a-side tournament hosted by Ian Cox has raised £1800 for Forever Manchester.

The tournament, held on Sunday 5th October saw companies from all over Greater Manchester take part, with Made By Shape and Photo Link (pictured) going head-to-head in the final, which dramatically went to penalties after a 4-4 draw.

Made By Shape came up trumps in the end winning after penalties.

Forever Manchester Ambassador, Chris Marsh took part on the day as part of team UK Fast, though he didn’t make the final, Chris’s contribution to the organisation of the Creative Cup encouraged Ian Cox to support us and we hope to be considered again in future years.

Creative Cup founder, Ian Cox said: “The tournament was a successful day, with everyone having a smashing time. The weather did us a favour too. Thanks to everyone who supported the event this year and helped raise £1800 for Forever Manchester. “

“Forever Manchester ambassador Chris Marsh has been a great help with the event over the years and he proposed the charity, explaining that the money raised goes straight back to the Manchester community. A very worthwhile cause.”

Huge thanks goes to everyone who took part in the Creative Cup, all the money raised will go towards improving communities across Greater Manchester, and encouraging local people to do extraordinary things.
