This year’s tournament for around 40 teams is being held on Thursday 4 September at Woodlands Castle in Taunton, from 1.45pm till 6.00pm. Drinks will be available throughout, with a buffet served late afternoon. Entering a team costs £80, with proceeds going to charity, or £100 with additional £20 going straight to the Somerset Crimebeat Trust.

Teams of three or four people will compete for boules prizes while enjoying an afternoon of business networking, and all for a good cause. Prizes will also be given for those wishing to come in fancy dress.

Event organiser, Ben Trickey of Summerfield, said: “Following the success of our previous charity boules tournaments, the interest in participating this year has already been very good. With around eight places remaining for teams to enter this year, I would urge people to get in touch and register their interest as soon as possible.”

Somerset Crimebeat Trust aims to give young people in Somerset the opportunity to combat crime, and causes of crime, in their community. The charity is led by the High Sheriff of Somerset, Richard Lloyd, who is also Summerfield’s executive chairman.

To book tickets and enter your team, contact Gill Ellis from Summerfield on 01823 257961 or fill in an application form on Summerfield’s website
