Throughout the year our lovely Ambassadors are busy planning a range of interesting events to raise money for Children on the Edge. Last month their fundraising took the form of a cricket match at Westbourne House.
Euan, our Children on the Edge Ambassador, provided us with the inside scoop from the day and told us all about what everyone got up to:
“On the 21st May the annual match between Westbourne House took place on a beautiful, sunny evening. The battle commenced under the wonderful and impartial eyes of the Headmaster of Westbourne House and the ex Headmaster of Dorset House.
The standard of cricket never quite lived up to the quality of banter and camaraderie of the individuals at this encounter. An unexpurgated version of this brief report is available for additional COTE contribution!"
We would like to say a special thank you to Anna, Charlotte, Alex, Simon and Johnny for all their hard work organising and hosting the match. Also not forgetting Euan who regularly helps with Ambassadors events and keeps all the guests updated about our international projects.
We are always so impressed by the dedication our Ambassador’s put into their fundraising and their innovative ways to support us. The cricket match was a great event combining an evening of friendly sport with raising awareness about our vital work. All together the match raised the incredible amount of £1500! A huge thank you to everyone who attended and donated.
If you have any fundraising ideas we would love to hear from you, please do get in touch!
