The tournament is run by Dodgeball UK and is fundraising for The Prince’s Trust, LGT Vestra’s charity partner. Whilst places are filling up quickly, there are still a few available for Bristol Life readers as this publication is proud to be the tournament’s media partner. A minimum donation of £350 is required to enter a team and this includes BBQ food, arrival drink, live band and transport to and from Bristol city centre. The event starts at 5.30pm and teams are a minimum of six and maximum of ten players. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enter.
The tournament is fancy dress and LGT Vestra is hoping the Bristol costumes out do those from this year’s London event! Prizes will be awarded for the team in the best fancy dress and also to the winning team.
The Prince’s Trust helps disadvantaged and vulnerable young people aged 11-30 who are unemployed and those who are struggling at school. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law.
Speaking about the event, Allie May, Events Manager for the South West at The Prince’s Trust said: “We are incredibly grateful to LGT Vestra for bringing their ever popular Dodgeball tournament to Bristol and for choosing us as their benefitting charity. It is brilliant to see our corporate supporters all come together to raise even more vital funds for young people on the fringes of society in such a unique and fun way.”
Andrew Davies, Head of the South West at LGT Vestra, added: “We are delighted to bring this successful fundraising event to Bristol for the first time and hope to raise as much as we can in support of our charity partner, The Prince’s Trust. We look forward to welcoming as many teams as possible and making the inaugural event a huge success.”
