It was another very closely fought match and our congratulations must go to the winners ‘The 59 ers’ , and to the 3 teams who tied for 2nd place. Thanks to all the teams for supporting us and to The Posh Plaice for a delicious fish and chip supper. And our grateful thanks once again to Richard and Adrienne Lewis for a fun and challenging quiz which helped us raise £1,500 for the NSPCC.

Mrs Rosie Akerman

Kingswood NSPCC would like to thank Rosie Akerman for over 20 years support of the NSPCC. She spent some years on the Committee back in the early 1990s and has been running the Annual Tennis Tournament throughout this time. Rosie prepared all the paperwork and persuaded 40 ladies to play in the tournament raising considerable funds the Charity. Everyone has had fun playing in the competition and then enjoying a delicious lunch prepared by the Kingswood NSPCC Committee. This annual event has always been well supported and we are eternally grateful to Rosie for her many years of support.
Kingswood Committee presented Rosie with a personal gift as a thank you for all her efforts and the thousands of pounds that she has raised on behalf of the NSPCC, which have gone to help children in Surrey who so desperately need our help through the work of the Charity.
