7th Annual VC Softball Match in Primrose Hill

The 7th Annual VC softball event was held is glorious sun in Primrose Hill last Friday 17th August.  The game was tightly fought.  The rules were bent, the catches were spectacular and the running between bases, vigorous.  Arun was particularly menacing, insisting on carrying his bat (between the wickets??).

The result was Sean’s team emerged slightly ahead of Kelsey’s team over 4 innings.

We would like to thank our sponsors Profounders, SEP and the EVCN who made the event possible.

On the day, we raised £300 for our chosen charity, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  Thanks to everybody for their generosity.  This money goes direct to the JDRF to research a cure for Type 1 or childhood diabetes.  There are about 400,000 people living with type 1 in the UK at the moment.  Type 1 is five times more common in children than bacterial meningitis, cancer, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis.

Hope to see you all again next year.
