Following on from their lunch party success in August, and building on a Summer of tennis triumphs for the nation, Children on the Edge Ambassadors held a tennis tournament in September 2013 at four separate venues in the Pulborough countryside.
A wonderful catered lunch was provided, enjoyed by all competitors except the finalists, who had to eschew the delicious wine and food.
Children on the Edge Ambassador, Euan Clarke, presented the trophy and flowers to the winners. He said “I am so pleased I was able to witness that the competitive edge is alive and well in West Sussex and I am so grateful to everyone for their magnificent contribution, especially organisers Charlotte, Alex, Tracy and Anna”.
The event has raised over £800 for the work of Children on the Edge around the world. This will pay for 11 street children in Uganda to have a year of vocational training, breaking a cycle of poverty and resourcing them for the future.
It is hoped that the tournament will be an annual event and we are very grateful to all those who took part. If you have ideas for fundraising then don’t hesitate to get in touch!
