Bowling for Coventry

"Well at Coventry House we don’t waste any time getting the job done – we started our fundraising for Community Week this month! Our bowling night raised £160 from staff, family and friends, who all paid £5 to charity for the privilege of spending time knocking down pins.

We had an array of spectacular prizes on offer, awarded for Highest Score, Lowest Score and Worst Shirt of the Competition.

Ray Smith from our Returns Department walked off with the prize for the highest score - an impressive 172. We all think he's a pro, as he came armed with his own balls.

Carol Jacques from our Day Pack managed to win the award for Lowest Score at 31. We’re still not sure how she managed it, maybe it was all those energy drinks she was downing?

Liam Cottle, youngest son of Rob Cottle our Transport Manager, won the prize for Lowest Score from the youngsters who took part.

And Steve Milner from our Day Warehouse was the proud winner of the title "Worst Shirt of the Competition". We’re thinking of issuing similar as the new style Hi-Vis jackets….

We’ve already thought about what to do next and Ray ‘Sepp Blatter’ George, our Twilight Manager, is busy organising the Football Tournament of the Year, with some excellent raffle prizes donated by local businesses. We have some other events in the pipeline too, and more on that as they take place."
