Have your say

Whether it’s an event for team building, or just as a night out for staff, a charity rounders tournament next month may be just what your business is looking for.

It’s being organised to raise funds for The Children’s Centre and teams are being urged to sign up for the event at Vagabonds Rugby Club, Ballafletcher Road, Braddan, on Thursday, July 10, at 6pm.

The winners of the tournament – sponsored by Paragon Recruitment – will have the honour of being crowned Rounders Champions but, says Susie Cox, fundraising co-ordinator at The Children’s Centre, the emphasis will be on friendly competition and having fun.

She added: ‘This is an ideal event for any business looking to encourage team spirit, or just as a fun night out which raises funds for a good cause.

‘We’re looking for teams of up to 10 players – it only costs £10 per head, which includes a barbecue, and all funds raised will go to support The Children’s Centre’s charity projects which help families and children across the island.

‘It’s open to everyone from corporate teams looking for a social get together while raising funds for a good cause, to teams of families and friends just wanting to have a fun night out. The Vagabonds Rugby Club bar will be open throughout, and we must say a big thank you to the club and everyone who has helped to stage the tournament, especially the sponsors Paragon Recruitment.’

Last year a team from chartered accountants firm PWC won the trophy, and they are urging teams to sign up this year.

As well as the teams taking part, supporters and friends are welcome to come along and watch the action and cheer on all the competitors. Entry forms can be found at or by emailing – or phoning Susie on 676076 for more details.
