The British Summer shone down on the Maresfield pitch as more than 100 people from the local business community attended the event.
The event was in aid of another Chamber member, Chailey Heritage Foundation, with all proceeds being donated to the charity. Chailey Heritage Foundation is a Sussex based charity providing education, care and transition services to children and young adults with complex physical disabilities and health problems.
Staff members from Simmons Gainsford, Neva Consultants, The Marketing Eye, Uckfield FM, Chailey Heritage, SO Legal, CJ Thorne Group and Peter Taylor Associates all competed for the prize of best Rounders team in East Sussex. The winners, Chailey Heritage Foundation, taking the crown from CJ Thorne after a gritting final against Neva Consultants.
Hundreds of pounds were raised on the day and donations continue to come in.
James Duggan, Partner at Simmons Gainsford LLP in Uckfield commented “Another great event for the local businesses of Uckfield as well as managing to raise some important funds for Chailey Heritage, who we proudly have as our chosen charity. As an added bonus, the bad weather held off until the end which was helpful”
Graham Prince, Director at Neva Consultants added “We were delighted to sponsor this event again with Simmons Gainsford. This enabled 100% of the monies contributed passed directly to The Chailey Heritage Charity. It was fantastic to see so many people from the local business community supporting this event and making new acquaintances in a relaxed atmosphere. Thank you to Maresfield Cricket Club for producing a delicious BBQ. Congratulations to all 7 teams for participating and, although they beat Neva in the final, it was lovely to have a new winner this year and even more ponente that the team from Chailey Heritage won. A huge “Thank you” to everyone for contributing and raising in excess of £275.00 for the Charity”
A huge thank you to all of those who participated and supported this year’s tournament and we hope to see you again in 2020.
