Skittles Evening - 4th October 2013

SkittlesWe are held our popular Skittles Evening fundraising event on Friday 4th October at Barnacle Village Hall. This was ideal venue as it not only has three different variations of the skittles game (alley, table and "cheeses"), but it also has a licensed bar - useful for celebrating or drowning sorrows!

The doors opened at 18:30, with the first games kicking off at a little after 19:15. The entry fee of £8 per person included a "fish 'n' chip" supper that arrived about an hour after starting and were certainly appreciated.

All the profits of the event boosted the Club's charitable activities, with the primary focus this year being ShelterBox, an organisation that does some amazing work in disaster areas around the world. This currently includes providing temporary accommodation for Syrian refugees.

Over 60 people had a thoroughly enjoyable night, although it was tinged with a sad note as Walter Jackson, the original instigator of the event, died a week earlier on the 27th September. The local residents, including one of his daughters, were the winning team - a fitting result really.
