£1,431 raised in the latest collaboration between Watford businesses and local voluntary sector organisations

Six local businesses came together to muster something special at the Meriden Community Centre. Competing against one another on a range of activities, the title of inaugural winners of the first-ever Big Charity Sports Day went to Penman Sedgwick LLP.

On a day that even the rain was unable to dampen, a rather soggy Harry the Hornet pushed the competitors all the way. There was lots of energy on-show and the odd fancy dress costume, all in aid of Herts Inclusive Theatre (HIT) and Watford FC’s Community Sports and Education Trust (Watford FC’s CSE Trust).

£1,431 was raised overall through sponsorships and a raffle held on the night. The money will now be split between both HIT and Watford FC’s CSE Trust and go towards helping them continue making a positive difference to the lives of local people within the community.

The Big Charity Sports Day organised and delivered by a team of staff and volunteers from HIT and Watford FC’s CSE Trust, was sponsored by Metro Bank Watford and supported by Anytime Fitness and Merchant Taylors School.

The other businesses that battled it out, performing admirably, but falling just short on this occasion included: James Hallam Ltd; Herts Chamber of Commerce; The Athena Network; DLL, and Metro Bank.

“For our first ever Big Charity Sports Day, we are delighted at how everything went, the businesses involved were great sports and we are hugely thankful for their involvement and of course generous sponsorships –Emma Harrington of Herts Inclusive Theatre.
