Midlands tug of war charity event calls for entrants

On Saturday 3rd August, The Furniture Makers’ Company’s Midlands Region will host the Midlands Tug of War Tournament & Family Fun Day at Long Eaton Rugby Club, Derbyshire.

The event promises to be an opportunity for friends, family and furnituremakers, enthusiasts, and industry professionals to come together, network, and enjoy a day of games and fundraising, says the industry charity, which has developed the event with help from Furniture News’ publisher, Nigel Gearing, an avid tug of war enthusiast.

“We’re inviting the furniture industry to enter teams and join in this August,” he says. “It’ll be a great family day out, at the same time raising much-needed funds for this marvellous charity. In addition, companies will be pulling for a magnificent trophy, as well as the prestige of being industry champions!”

The competition will be divided into classes (men, women and mixed 4 + 4), and a full post-contest report will feature in September’s Furniture News.

Alongside the tug of war contest, there promises to be plenty of entertainment, including a bouncy castle, bar and BBQ, as well as raffle and auction prizes to be won.
