Charity Kingpin going for a strike!
The Children’s Foundation’s third annual Ten Pin Bowling Tournament took place on Thursday 27th February 2014 at the Metrocentre Namco Bowling Alley. The Children’s Foundation’s Fundraising Committee organised this event and as always it was very well attended by the professionals of the NorthEast. The event is not only competitive but also offers a fun platform for networking, unlike, any other event in the region.
Companies bowling for glory:- Brewin Dolphin, HMC Group, Handelsbanken, Knight Frank, Ward Hadaway, Sintons Law, Handelsbanken, KPMG, Elanders, Leathers LLP, Ryecroft Glenton, Deloitte LLP, RMT Accountants and Business Advisors , Hay & Kilner Solicitors.
Libby Nolan, Fundraising Manager, The Children’s Foundation, commented “This event attracts teams from some of the most well respected and prestigious companies in the region. It is orga
nised by our fundraising committee, again, made up of professionals from some of these companies such as Brewin Dolphin and Handelsbanken. These events let us continue our work to improve the health and well being of children in the North East. Last year, we directly affected 29,500 lives’ of some of the North East’s most vulnerable children.”
Martin Glaholm, Individual Banking Manager, Handelsbanken and member of The Children’s Foundation Fundraising Committee, added “I helped Libby set up the Fundraising Committee as I thought that the professional services industry in the North East could provide a great supportive network for The Children’s Foundation. We’ve helped the Fundraising team with new contacts and provided teams for various different events which appeal to the business world. The Bowling Tournament is by far the most popular event and we’ve ran it successfully for 3 years. Each year gets more competitive than the last, with companies like Brewin Dolphin and Ward Hadaway all aiming to steal the title from last year’s winning team, Knight Frank.”
Brewin Dolphin came back with a vengeance this year, after finishing last in the 2013 Bowling Tornument they finally struck gold by stealing the winning title!
