Fifteen business teams from Sussex competed in the fourth annual ‘Great Sussex Bath Race’ at a private lake near Chichester in June, with Henry Adams from Chichester taking the Grand Final Winners trophy. The BNI Hove Albion team took home the Demolition Derby trophy.

Natwest Business Banking from Brighton ‘won’ the Wooden Spoon Trophy. Their team was recognised for their all round team spirit and enthusiasm for the fourth year running, as well as their outstanding fundraising effort.

“It was a brilliant day of sporting competition and team building. We have already raised around £11k for our chosen charities, Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice and LifeCentre, with many more pledges and donations to be counted,” said Event Director Neil Laughton.

“I’d like to thank everyone who threw themselves into this whacky contest with such enthusiasm! Already businesses are approaching us to enter teams for the next tournament on 2nd July 2017!” said Event Organiser, Gemma King of Vivid Marketing.
