Without the support of the Upminster public, and our very loyal and generous sponsors (further details of which can be seen at http://www.upminstercricketclub.com/news/benefit-match-welcome-to-our-sponsors-1973382.html and http://www.upminstercricketclub.com/d/sponsors.html) the matches with Essex would not be possible.
We are also thankful for the support of many local businesses whose services help the day run smoothly.
Our sponsors are always well looked after by the Kalijeera Indian Restaurant (https://kalijeera-upminster.co.uk/) and Marion Halls (firstname.lastname@example.org) whose catering keeps all of guests well fed throughout the day. We are also supported on this front by K's Catering (http://kscateringhire.com/) and Justin and his Team at Tables Plus (email@example.com) who between them supply all of our catering equipment and our tables and chairs for the event.
This year we were also grateful for the assistance of Laila Rani and the team at Manny's Marquees who at very short notice arranged for the hire of one of their marquees which was much needed with the weather we experienced on Sunday (https://www.mannysmarquees.co.uk/).
CTM Van Rentals were very generous in supplying us with the use of one of their vans for the weekend which was crucial in our efforts to set up and clear up the ground over the weekend (http://www.ctmvanrentals.co.uk/)
Helping to keep all of the spectators fed and watered we were pleased to work with Cocktail Bar, Fizz and Foam (http://www.fizzandfoam.co.uk/), and one of our Windmill Whack sponsors Healthy Roots (https://www.healthy-roots.co.uk/), as well as our long term friend Margaret's Ice Cream Van (07980 920624). And as with all of our Benefit Matches we received excellent support and assistance from our brewery, Greene King (https://www.greeneking.co.uk/) who helped with the set up and supply of the beer tent for the afternoon.
We also worked with Hares Hire Services (http://www.hareshire.co.uk/
) and Rawley Welfare Units and Toilet Hire (http://www.rawley.co.uk/) who helped with services which were needed for the event.
We received excellent service from all of these companies and hope to be able to work with them again in the future.
