Knauf sent two teams to take part in the Construction Cup in early September, a charity football tournament organised for the Construction Youth Trust.

The two teams drew employees from the Knauf plants in Sittingbourne and Immingham, as well as members of the marketing team. As part of a wider effort in the construction industry to bolster diversity, all teams must have at least one female playing at all times to be eligible for the tournament.

The Construction Youth Trust is a charity that helps young people in England and Wales, providing them with access to training, education and employment opportunities in the UK construction industry.
