A Sporting Bunch
There have been a lot of sporting achievements and upcoming physical challenges within the team recently and we thought that it would be nice to share these in Navigator.
After last years successful Brecon Beacon Challenge (in which the team raised over £1,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society), next month half of us will be climbing up Scafell Pike to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West.
Our very own Steve Brady has been selected to represent England in the over 50’s Hockey team (and went on to win every game in their first tournament) and we have recently sponsored the exciting young Bath Rugby player Josh Bayliss.
On the 7th of July a team of 9 will be heading to the lakes in the very early hours of Saturday morning to climb and conquer Scafell Pike. After a long day of walking we will then nip up the Old Man of Coniston and back on the Sunday morning, before the long drive home. We are taking on this challenge to raise funds for the Children’s Hospice South West, an amazing local charity which we have had a close connection with over many years.
Many of us have visited the hospice at Charlton Farm in Wraxall and have seen first-hand the incredible work that they do. If you would like to sponsor us we would be very grateful for any donations, big or small – just click the link below to donate via our just giving page;
We will be sure to let you know how we get on and thank you in advance for your support.

Steve’s Playing for England!
We’d like to congratulate Steve Brady, a director of the firm, on being selected to represent the England over 50’s Hockey team. This is a fantastic achievement for Steve who has now had the opportunity to represent England on the world stage. Steve has now played his first International Hockey tournament, representing England at the Home Nations competition in London. England managed to win every game without conceding a single goal.
I asked Steve if there was anything he’d like mentioned in this article and his response was ‘feel free to use words like heroic’.
A glass to Steve… Heroic!
Sponsoring a Future Rugby Legend
We’re delighted to announce that we are sponsoring the exciting young Bath rugby player – Josh Bayliss.
A local lad, Josh is a former pupil at Millfield School in Glastonbury. He was a member of the England under 20’s squad that went on to achieve a Six Nations Grand Slam and a place in the 2017 World Rugby under 20’s Championship. He made his first team debut for Bath in 2016 and has been hailed one of the most exciting back row players in the country.
