BG win charity beach volleyball tournament
We are happy to report on Bennett Griffins’s stupendous victory last night in the 2nd BENNETT GRIFFIN BIG BEACH VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT.
6 teams took part and we finished second in the group stage, but went on to win the final against Kingsley Roofing (not without a hint of controversy) in a very close match. Considering we finished last a year ago, it was a great effort and thanks to the winning squad – Amy, Chris, Ian, Mike, Matt and Steve (all the hard work on the practice court has paid off and turned us into the well oiled victory machine we are today ;)). Thanks also to Toby for his excellent comparing.
It was a fun evening (aided by some much needed sunshine) and the other local businesses who took part – Michael Jones, Spofforths, Carpenter Box and the Kingsley Group – have praised BG for running the event.
Finally, the tournament was run as a charity event and all the participating teams contributed £50, so £300 was raised for St Barnabas in memory of Charlotte Hammond.
