Three from Astra show their support in charity cricket match
Last Sunday saw members from Astra Security don their cricket whites and play in a charity cricket match for Bristol Wanderers. They played against a strong Twyford House Cricket team at Twyford’s home ground in Bristol.
Bristol Wanderers is made up of veteran rugby players who get together 3 – 4 times a year in support of local Bristol charities. Sunday’s team included support from Astra Security, with Managing Director, Paul Beet and Engineer, Roy Winters who played in the match, alongside General Manager, Sarah Steer who was the match ‘scorer’. Sarah also brought along her husband Andy, who acted as Umpire.
Gary Ball, Chairman of Twyford House Cricket Club said “Today’s been a great success. We’re thrilled to have set up a match with Bristol Wanderers and I know the team together with club members and their families have enjoyed it. There’s been great support all round today and knowing it’s for a worthwhile charity makes it even more special. We have a really strong relationship with Paul at Astra, and it’s great to utilise these relationships for good causes such as this one”.
Paul Beet, Managing Director at Astra Security and Bristol Wanderer said “There’s been some great cricket today, and I’m proud that some of the team at Astra are able to show their support. We all get a great sense of pride knowing it’s for a good cause. We always have a good game and some fun at the same time.”
Bristol Wanderers has raised over £75 000 since setting up and has supported charities in and around Bristol. This year’s chosen charity is Gympanzees, which provides valuable support for young people with disabilities and their families.
