On 21 March 2018, two teams from Lambert Chapman LLP took part in the Handelsbanken Charity Bowl which was held for the first time at NAMCO Funscape Bowling in Braintree, raising money for Farleigh Hospice.
The evening consisted of two games of bowling, with all of the lanes being used by 48 teams of three people. There was a break for food in-between the games where the competitors could mingle and see how their colleagues and contacts were getting on.
Lambert Chapman LLP teams consisted of:
Here for the Beer: Luke Mitchell (c), Graham McNeill and Arran Andrews.
Accrual Fate: Jack Webb (c), Callum Okeeffe and Daniel McIntyre
At the half way stage it was looking very promising for the Lambert Chapman teams with our own Luke Mitchell bowling the highest individual score of 189, leading by 20 points on his closest rival, and taking his team ‘Here for the Beer’ to the top of the table with the 2nd half to play.
Unfortunately, playing two games took its toll on the players, and Luke ended up in 3rd position, the highest individual scorer being Tim Harbour from Lucentum Ltd with 347 points over the two games. The Lambert Chapman team ‘Here for the beer’ ended 2nd overall, only 4 points behind the winning team from Lucentum Ltd again with 799 points.
Lambert Chapman team ‘Accrual Fate’ attending their first bowling event and finished in a respectable 19th place overall, and are very keen to improve in next year’s event. Daniel McIntyre impressed on his individual debut with 246 points over the two games finishing 27th.
The event was extremely well organised and finished on time, a remarkable achievement given the number of people taking part. A cheque was presented to Farleigh Hospice for £3,314.72.
Our thanks go to the Handelsbanken team who put so much effort into making it such an enjoyable evening for all participants, including some live singing!
Bowl on next year.
