Two club members – Marcus Coles and Giles Membrey – have secured sponsorship for the club from Collins and Sons, the prestigious Tunbridge Wells jewellers. Their effort is greatly appreciated and the donation of £2,250 to cover a three year period is a very generous sum that the Committee has decided should be spent on the following events/activities:
£500 prize money for the next three years for a Ladies professional exhibition match to be held during the Colin Payne Kent Open sponsored by Select Gaming. This match will be named ‘The Collins Jewel’ - subject to their approval.
£250 for the next three years towards prize money for the Colin Payne Kent Open sponsored by Select Gaming. This sum will be added to the other donations for this year’s Pro Tournament and wall plaque sponsorship recently renewed by Mansfield solicitors and The Wells Clinic. The club would also like to recognise the recent financial support of the Spa Hotel, both for the club itself and the Pro-Tournament.
The Committee will write to Collins to document the above and secure their approval for the naming of the match.
