On Sunday 10th July 2011, 300 invited guests were treated to a day of keenly contested Polo on the grounds at Sussex Polo Club, competing for the Comtec Enterprises annual charity Cup in aid of ‘The Children’s Trust’ Tadworth. The main match of the day was played at a blistering pace and saw the Red Tigers take away the lead, defeating Comtec’s team 8-6.
Guests enjoyed an afternoon of polo with access to various hospitality tents whilst the youngsters were kept busy on the bouncy castle and inflatable assault course. During the afternoon, the lucky winners of the prize draw and the silent auction lot winners were announced. Prizes of which were donated by a number of generous suppliers including Avaya, Mimecast, Avnet, Barracuda, Brocade and Exclusive Networks who also displayed their portfolio of products and solutions with an abundance of giveaways in the Comtec tent alongside the group of businesses under the Claxson Group.
The day raised over £2,000 in support of ‘The Children’s Trust’ who are a national charity providing care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs. The care given by the charity comes at a cost and is not fully met from statutory sources so they rely on voluntary income to meet the full cost. For example new buildings and equipment, leisure activities for the children, maintaining the sensory gardens and nature trail in the grounds, the support offered to families and the cost of recruiting and training the volunteers are all funded through voluntary donations. This is why Comtec believe the support of events such as these are so important.
Comtec Enterprises and The Claxson Group would like to take this opportunity to thank you for joining us and supporting the vital work being done by The Children’s Trust and hope to see you next year!
