Friends of Boys Town Jerusalem bowled over the competition on Wednesday night as Maccabi GB hosted the 7th Maccabi GB and Marcus Fielding Inter-Charity Bowling Competition.
The charity beat 14 other teams to claim the title of ‘Lord of the Lanes’ for the fourth consecutive year. However, the real impact of the event was the number of charity workers who donned their bowling shoes, with over 100 participating at Hollywood Bowl, Finchley.
Speaking about the Inter-charity Bowling Competition, Maccabi GB’s Event Manager, Elizabeth Fishel, said, “The event was great and ran smoothly. One of Maccabi GB’s objectives is to work with as many charitable organisations as possible. This event was a great opportunity for the staff of the different communal organisations to come together and network in a relaxed environment. It’s also nice to see bowlers of all ages and abilities come together and get involved in some exercise which is actually lots of fun to do.”
Special thanks must go to all the charities who took part, including Aish, CST, Holocaust Educations Trust, JAMI, Jewish Care, JNF, Kisharon, Liberal Judaism, UJIA, Reform Judaism and, of course, Friends of Boys Town Jerusalem.
