A total of 340 people played a competitive night of rounders games in The Children’s Centre’s ever popular annual rounders tournament, which raised £7,000 and was sponsored by PwC Isle of Man.
Held at Vagabond’s Rugby Club, this year’s tournament saw thirty-four teams participate from a range of organisations and businesses across the Island. The event sold out quickly, with team entries already on the books for 2023’s tournament.
‘One Hit Wonders’ – a mix of teachers from Scoill yn Jubilee – were crowned tournament champion, with PwC in close second place as runner’s up.
The Children’s Centre is a local charity helping children, young people and families on the Island when they are faced with challenges in their lives. The event proceeds will provide funding to support over 60, 3 hour, 1 to 1 sessions working directly with a child or young person who is struggling with behavioural, learning or emotional wellbeing issues.
Jane Howland, Fundraiser for The Children’s Centre said: ‘It was another fabulous evening at our annual rounders tournament and we would like to congratulate Scoill yn Jubilee on their victory Despite a COVID curve ball at the eleventh hour with two teams having to drop out, we were delighted that thirty-four teams competed and most importantly, generated £7,000 to support our local services helping make the Isle of Man a safe and progressive community.
‘A big thank you to those who helped on the night, the rounders teams and PwC Isle of Man for their continued involvement. Their sponsorship covers the event’s organisational costs, allowing all proceeds to go directly to the support we provide to children, young people and families at The Children’s Centre.’
Isle of Play has raised £240 through a charity quiz night at the Black Dog Oven in Peel. The quiz was won by Tits McGee, with spot prizes also being awarded throughout the night.
There will be more quizzes coming up, so stay tuned.
The Creamery’s recent bake sale raised £223 for charity Isle Listen. As well as selling cakes, the morning gave employees a chance to take some time out of their day to come for some cake, coffee and a chat.
