Ram Cricket Club, based in Crawley, invited Just Ask to participate in their annual 6-a-side cricket tournament competing for the Sanjay Patel Memorial trophy. Several members of the cricket club work for Just Ask, and we were more than happy to assemble a team of players from the company for the tournament.
A buzz of excitement and several practice sessions took place in the run up to the day.
The Just Ask team consisted of:
Several other members of staff and their families also attended to support our colleagues taking part. There were activities throughout the day including a bouncy castle for the children, a BBQ, cake stall and a massage tent for all to enjoy and help raise money for the charities.
The club also kindly donated the leftover food items from the BBQ (Burger rolls and bottled water) to Crawley Open House, the local support centre for homeless and disadvantaged people.
Ram Cricket Club raised over £5000 to share amongst The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre and St Catherine’s Hospice, both based in Crawley and both helped Sanjay in his final months.
