Design365 are always keen to help local causes and are even more keen when these are being organized by one of our team.
Joe Childs, our lead developer and keen tennis player and his partner Hannah Stockton, put together a tennis competition. A tennis competition for local players at Wellfield Tennis Club, located in Darlington on Sunday, March 25. This attracted players from all around the region. The event was to support the Teenage Cancer Trust and the competition was appropriately named the Harvey Gaydon Memorial Trophy as Harvey, who was a member of the tennis club before he sadly passed away in 2011.
The event had 32 players and as a company we offered to match the entry fees which resulted in £800 being donated to this worthwhile cause. Despite all the bad weather recently, the weather was bright and sunny and the competition was played in great spirit.
Of course we would never mention Joe going out in the Semi Final on a double fault but we will - but, what we can say. Apart from how well Hannah and Joe did in organizing the event and making sure everyone had a great time.
Well done to all involved.
Alan Foster, Managing Director.
