Hunter Gee Holroyd held its Annual Charity Event for local businesses on Friday 12 October 2018 in aid of Martin House Hospice. This year’s event, ‘A Bowling Night with a
Difference’ was a fun evening of bowling, held at the Tenpin York in Clifton Moor.
Sponsorship and Support from Local Companies
Many local businesses sponsored bowling lanes including Begbies Traynor, The Balloon Tree Farm Shop and Café, Fulprint, The Star Inn the City, Nomination Italy and Redman Nichols Butler.
Teams earned (or lost!) extra points by taking part in a forfeit round, buying Director Mark Grewer for a “Marky Bonus” round or getting a strike on a bonus round.
Raffle prizes were generously donated by local companies. These included Middlethorpe Hall & Spa, The Star Inn the City, Stockeld Park, Revolution York, Brewtown Tours, Torque Law, Piglets Adventure Farm, The Web Adventure Park, Nomination Italy, Bang on Books and York Golf Club, Hunter Gee Holroyd and HGH Wealth Management.
£3,870 raised for Martin House Hospice
The money raised enabled the hospice to purchase a fully adaptable bed for children to stay in at the hospice for their respite breaks with their families.
Nigel Atkinson, Director said: ‘‘Everyone enjoyed a fantastic evening of informal networking, team building and Hunter Gee Holroyd’s bowling with a difference. We were delighted to raise £1,935 for Martin House. We would particularly like to thank Barclays for match funding of £1,935 which helped us to reach the total. We would also like to thank all the businesses who generously
donated prizes, sponsored lanes and bought raffle tickets.”
Emily Lynn from Martin House thanked everyone who supported the event. She said: “Thank you to all the Hunter Gee Holroyd team for their support again this year and showing off their bowling skills to fundraise for Martin House. Support like this, makes it possible for us to provide family led care to over 400 children, young people with life limiting conditions and their families across North, East and West Yorkshire.”
