You may have seen that we hosted our very first Charity Football Match and Party a few weekends ago? Well here is the down low on exactly what happened and how we raised £818 in one day for The British Red Cross Disaster Fund!
Sunday March 13th we hosted a Football Match featuring our 40 Colori Italy based team versus our 40 Colori London based Team! This match was played both for charity and in memoriam of a beloved friend and player Giorgio whom we lost in 2014. Luck was on our side as the sun came out to shine perfectly on the day of our match! The match was a tight one but in the end our Italian based team were victorious with a 4-2 end score.
Here a few action shots from the match!
Following the match our teams cleaned themselves up and headed back to our Shoreditch shop for a proper after party celebration! We were a packed house full of delicious treats straight from Italy, stone baked pizzas, amazing local Brick Brewery
craft beers, cupcakes and much more! During our event we celebrated our match and the funds we had raised from the event but we also hosted a 40 Colori Charity Raffle! Our raffle included a varied selection of 40 Colori products, a Gucci Watch, and lastly a Como Jersey! All of our raffle winners were ecstatic and the whole shop was shaking with applause and celebration cries! (Apologies to the residents of Cheshire Street for the rowdy Sunday night!)
As you can see from the photos, we had quite a wild night!
Now a moment to give a huge thank you shout out to our superb event sponsors! The lovely people at Vita Coco UK
and Popchips UK
were kind enough to send us some snacks and fuel for our event! All of the snacks and drinks were a huge hit! Without their generous contributions we would not have made as much as we did for The British Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund

Cheers & Ciao'
