Description of event:

"The 5C's challenge in the UK is all about bring the cricketing enthusiasts of IT and Banking professional world together to have a lot of fun contesting for the winners trophy and knowing that their participation will bring much needed support to children in India and the UK who do not have the privileges that we all enjoy day-to-day. Cadence is proud to be associated with CRY and from its roots in India we are privileged to work along side CRY in the UK to put on this great event and see what a real difference the raised funds can make to marginalized children's lives.

Being able to communicate with our staff in Cadence about the CRY UK supported projects that the 5C's event can support and how this can ensure that children in India have basic rights, brings a fresh perspective to our privileged lives and new knowledge of how lives are so different in India. This understanding goes a long way and really does help with the support we receive both internally and from our sponsors.

The ability to make long term lasting differences to children, their community and for the generations to come is what CRY is all about and we in Cadence support this wholeheartedly."
- Richard Hastings, Cadence
