BOS & Al Noor Center for Children with Special Needs -Family Fun Fair 2019

An ongoing Partnership for empowering tolerance and acceptance of the other in the community… 

Bank of Sharjah participated in the annual Al Noor football tournament on March 1st and 2nd 2019 with team members from different departments and across the branches joining in the Al Noor Centre for Children with Special Needs gymnasium to play in friendly matches with other companies in the UAE.  

The football friendlies have formed an engaging part of the annual Al Noor Fun Fair event where spectators fill the sidelines to enjoy a series of fast-paced games from teams that range from impromptu matchups to the very talented.  While so many teams, like Bank of Sharjah’s, have participated in the tournament year-after-year, each match brings variety and standout performances from players committed to the important causes of community involvement and supporting the Nation’s children.

In the closing ceremony, Fares Saade, Senior Manager for Banking Operations at the Head Office, represented the Bank as Platinum Sponsor for the event and presented awards to the three leading teams: Dubai Duty Free, Bank of Sharjah, and Hyatt.  Samer Salem, Credit Manager for the Abu Dhabi branch, was recognized as the tournament’s most valuable player by the organizers for his exceptional performance in his precise passing, dizzying footwork, and ability to reliably place the ball in the goal box with great alacrity and skill.

This year Bank of Sharjah stood second in the tournament of nine teams.  In 2018, the team stood third and in 2017, the team topped and stood first. While the results have varied each year, the comradery, excitement, and dedication to upholding community values have endured.
