The Desk Jockey Games Challenge Cup hopes to raise funds for Bomber County Gateway Trust

By Connor Thompson

A sports tournament will help a charity in its efforts to build a national landmark expected to cost more than £150,000 to complete.

The Desk Jockey Games Challenge Cup, which will host walking football, skittles and pool matches, is raising funds for the Bomber County Gateway Trust.

The trust hopes to build a sculpture of an Avro Lancaster Bomber on high ground just off the A46 at Norton Disney, where it would be visible to an estimated 34,000 motorists every day.

The charity games are being organised by staff at WNS Consulting Ltd and FRP Advisory, and will be hosted by Collingham Football Club.

Wendy Shaw, one of the organisers, said the chosen charity ­— Bomber County Gateway Trust ­— was very topical and the fun day would provide an opportunity for local businesses to come together.

“The games are designed to provide an opportunity for local businesses and professionals to network and interact with each other while raising funds for a good cause,” Wendy said.

“Most networking events are meeting room-based, but this event offers a fun and competitive environment to get to know other businesses and individuals.

“In my experience you are much more likely to do business with someone you like, and what better way to get to know one another?”

The multi-sports event takes place at Station Road, Collingham.

It will run from from 1pm to 5pm on Friday, June 28.

Teams should consist of seven to ten members. Individuals or smaller teams can enter and be put together on the day.

The entry fee is £10 per person and food is included.

Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. A reserve list will be kept in case of cancellations.
