Once again, the Guardiola Sala Foundation actively collaborated in the Partnership Trophy, an annual tournament organized by the United Kingdom division of The Salvation Army, a global solidarity entity, and in which homeless people from the 80 lifehouses that the association has throughout the country participate.
The Foundation, represented live at the event by Pere Guardiola and Laura Guerra, contributed by providing all the material from the ‘welcome bag’, Puma football shirts and reusable water bottles, deodorants and tea bags, as well as the official Puma balls that the tournament was played with.
The Foundation also made it possible for Juan Mata, Manchester United star, to be present at the championship, very kind at all times with the participants, with whom he photographed himself and chatted, apart from watching the games. Who was also at the side of the homeless was Paul Merson, Arsenal legend, who in an interesting conference explained to them his alcohol addiction problems in his early days as a football player.
The Partnership Trophy, which was celebrating its tenth edition, was a great success and finally the winning team was the Wallace of Campsie Lifehouse in Glasgow.
