Charity Day 16th November, 2013.

In Aid of Cyprus Anti-Cancer Society

On Saturday the 16th November, 2013, the Shogun Group hosted its second Annual Charity Day which was supported and attended by the Short Mat clubs from Kama, F&P and Kiti. . This year's tournament was in aid of a very worthy local charity, the Cyprus Anti Cancer Society.

Throughout the day there were various stalls tempting players and non players alike to part with their cash. This included Target Bowls, Tombola, and a very well stocked Book Stall. Food and drink at very reasonable prices were also available throughout.

The Bowling started promptly at 0930hrs and involved a total of 72 players from all the clubs formed into teams of four, competing firstly in sectional play to determine section winners, with those winners progressing to the later knockout stages. Team selection again was based on one member from each of the competing groups.

The semi-finals were played between the following teams: Danny McLaren (Shogun), Wendy Woodford (Kama), Brian Souter (Kiti) and S. Josling (F&P) beat the team comprising Derek Smith (Shogun), Paul Godsmark (Kama), Janet Bennett (Kiti) and Kevin Males (F&P).

In the other Semi-final David Richards (Shogun), Roy Staples (Kama), Bob Smith (Kiti) and June Mason (F&P) beat David Saddler (Shogun), Glenis Godsmark (Kama), Rod Fry (Kiti) and J. Unsworth (F&P)

In the Final the team led by Danny McLaren played very well and thoroughly deserved their win.

The Shogun Short Mat group would like to thank everyone who attended the event, players and supporters alike, for their generosity and their contribution in making the day both successful in its aim, as well as enjoyable.

In the evening a total of 63 people attended at the Melizia Taverna, Tala, for a buffet meal and the evening's entertainment was provided by that man of many voices, Steve Richards. In addition there were further fund raising activities in the form of an auction and a raffle and very generous bids and offers contributed to the total amount raised.

The day's activities at the Shogun Short Mat and at the evening venue raised a terrific total of 1100 which was presented to the Cyprus Anti Cancer Society on the 25th of November, 2013.

Jim Allison from the Shogun Group paid tribute to the team of very willing helpers who all contributed to the preparation and organisation of the event and without whom it would have been impossible to run.
