Melanie Napthen, Purchase Ledger Assistant at Bertrams organised a bowling tournament at the Funscape Bowling Alley Norwich on July 23rd.

Fifteen people over three teams competed to take home the trophy and all important winners certificate. There were various runner up prizes all donated by local companies ranging from cinema tickets to chocolate.

At the end of the 2 games the overall winner was announced, congratulations to Ben Beach who looked very pleased with his trophy which now has pride of place on his desk in IT.
The highest scoring bowlers from each team were Hollie McCluskey, Jonathon Denton and of course Ben. The highest scorers took home a lucky dip prize; Hollie is already planning what she will see with her theatre tickets!

After a promising first game Nicola Jones took home the certificate for lowest score of the second game and Bernadette Nyulasz took home a box of chocolates for the overall lowest score. Perhaps a tactical move for the chocolate?!

If there was a prize for most entertaining bowling technique it would most definitely have gone to finance's Dale Pascoe, the video is probably making the rounds on YouTube already!

Overall the night was a huge success raising a total of £210! The funds raised will go to Refuge, a charity offers protection for victims of domestic violence and abuse.


  1. Brilliant evening, well done to Melanie for organising the event for such an amazing cause!!
