Somerset event raises money for disfigurement charity
Slee Blackwell's personal injury lawyers turned out in force for the firm's annual croquet challenge competition.
Business from Devon and Somerset took part in the challenge at the Taunton Deane Croquet Club.
The event was in aid of Changing Faces, a charity set up to help people with disfigurement. Solicitor James McNally nominated the charity having seen for himself the valuable work that they do. James specialises in dog attack cases and represents people who have suffered facial disfigurement, a high proportion of which are children. The organisation is able to provide a range of services and can advise on the latest skin camouflage techniqes.
The tournament was well attended and fiercely contested with the trophy going once again to estate agents Greenslade Taylor Hunt who notched up their second victory in consecutive years. The prize for best player in the 'Crazy Croquet' went to accountants Simpkins Edwards.
We were blessed with wonderful weatherwhich enabled games to be played long into the evening.
Greenslade Taylor Hunt will be returning next year to see if they can make it a hat trick of strrainght victories. In the meantime if you'd like to know more about the work of Changing Faces and skin camouflage go to https://www.changingfaces.org.uk/skin-camouflage
