On 7th April 2012, we held our first ever charity match. The Kiti Charity Cup was very generously sponsored by Chris Parry of Fraser Mackinlay.
96 players from the five short-mat clubs on the island: Famagusta and Paralimni, Kama, Star Bowling, Shogun and Kiti took part in the event, bowling in mixed teams chosen at random. We started at 10 in the morning and the final finished after 5 in the evening.
The winning team consisted of Roy, Maureen and Glynis of Kama and Bob of F&P.
The runners-up were Margaret (Kiti), Phil (Kama), Kath and Ann (F&P).
The match was followed by a buffet meal, drinks, entertainment and dancing at the Flamingo Beach Hotel in Larnaca.
With income from the playing fees, sponsorship, tombola, raffle and refreshments we were able to give a donation of € 1314 to the Kiti charity “Friends of the Poor”, fronted by the priest of the Angeloktisti church.
Our sincere thanks go to all who made this event a success.
