Oil Aid Background

Oil Aid is a fundraising event founded by Michael Holland (Jubilee Ships), Bob Finch (VITOL) and Marc Thompson (Tullett Prebon) following the devastating 2004 Asian Tsunami in which Michael Holland lost three members of his family. The three united with a shared desire to improve the lives of children both in the UK and abroad and thus Oil Aid was born.

Each year, members of the Oil and Gas, associated industries, gather at Stamford Bridge to play in a unique six-a-side football tournament. The event wraps up with an exclusive Gala dinner and auction later on in the Chelsea grounds.

Oil Aid is grateful to the ongoing support it receives from its many corporate friends and sponsors, including Affinity Shipbrokers, VITOL, Braemar ACM, TP ICAP, Noble Clean Fuels, Taleveras, Oil Tanking, Mabanaft, Simon Spence & Young amongst many others.
