Wakefield House took over the bowling alley last week, in support of the 3 Amigos bowling team. The 3 Amigos are an enthusiastic tenpin bowling team of three visually impaired people – either blind, partially sighted, and in one case, with learning and physical difficulties – who compete in the British Blind Sports Bowling League.
With 16 teams participating, a good time was had by all and an amazing £800 raised from the evening, £310 raised by the five Smiths News teams alone! This will help Cliff, Shaun and Russell enormously, enabling them to participate in forthcoming competitions around the country and further afield such as Ireland.
A bottle of Smiths News champagne was awarded to the winning team and a medal for each individual within the team. The winners just so happened to be a Smiths News team – the Adult Salmon Conquerors!
