Slough, Berks and Portsmouth, Hants, 5 September 2008: As the main sponsors of Portsmouth FC, OKI Printing Solutions were proud to sponsor this year’s Faith and Football, Diamonds & Tiara Ball held on Wednesday 3 September in Portsmouth.
Faith and Football is a charity run by ex-Pompey player Linvoy Primus. Established in 2002, the Christian charity seeks to serve needy youngsters and their families in cities in the UK and provide support for Christian projects abroad, at the same time sharing the Christian faith with those who have a common interest in football.
Event organiser, Heather Emery, says ‘the event was a great success and the amount of money raised was phenomenal – such success is only possible with the aid of organisations such as OKI’.
Ewa Johnson, marketing director, OKI, attended the ball. Johnson says, ‘the charity has done some amazing work and the glitz, glamour and generosity from the evening really showed this’.
An outstanding £36,000 was raised, through auctions and donations. One of the main prizes of the evening was an exclusive OKI Blue Printer signed by the Pompey teams and a day at the Pompey training ground, which auctioned for a stunning £850.
