10th Annual ASP Sticky Wicket X Competition raises £50,000 for Lord’s Taverners
Awash with enthusiastic cricketers from across the events and exhibition industry, Regent’s Park recently played host to the 10th Annual ASP Sticky Wicket X competition in aid of the Lord’s Taverners.
After a hard fought route to the final, the ladies and gentlemen from Reed Exhibitions eventually triumphed over EN Confex to win the coveted trophy!
Sticky Wicket is a networking day involving companies from the events and exhibitions industry. Now in its tenth year, the day is all about having fun, making new friends and enjoying a competitive game of cricket. To date, it has raised in excess of £300,000 for the Lord’s Taverners.
Some of the £50,000 raised on the day will go towards purchasing a 16 seat accessible minibus for The Markfield Project in Tottenham, to be delivered in 2017 helping to create many more sporting chances for the young people there.
Markfield is a community centre in Haringey which promotes the dignity, choice, independence and community inclusion of Disabled people and their families. They focus on the whole family and promote local community inclusion, to build and strengthen relationships, breaking down isolation and discrimination.
The Lord’s Taverners have been donating accessible minibuses to schools and organisations such as the Markfield Project since 1976 and it is through the generosity of attendees at events such as Sticky Wicket that enable us to give more young people a sporting chance.
