The Newbury business community came together in a sporting extravaganza to raise money for The Rosemary Appeal – a fundraising initiative set up to raise money for a new cancer and dialysis care centre at the West Berkshire Community Hospital.
Hosted by Newbury estate agents Jones Robinson on 2nd August, teams fielded by local businesses took part in a rounders competition at St Bartholomew’s School, who let the organisers use their magnificent facilities. Teams included Barclays Bank, First Xtra, Gardner Leader, Horsey Lightly Solicitors, Maxx Design and the Newbury Building Society – and Jones Robinson!
“We enjoy being part of the Newbury community so much that we decided to combine our local working relationships with our ongoing drive to raise money for The Rosemary Appeal, of which we are proud corporate sponsors,” comments Charles Robinson, a Partner at Jones Robinson. “Our rounders event added £1,250 to the fundraising pot and I think we have created a brilliant community event in the process – one we have been asked to repeat again next year and look forward to hosting!”
