A competition held as part of the World Indoor Bowls championships has raised £1100 for Big C.
Spectators at the Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines World Indoor Bowls Championships, held at Potters Leisure Resort at Hopton-on-Sea during the month of January, entered a competition to guess the colour of the flower being worn on the lapel of Judy Potter’s jacket for the final of the World Indoor Singles. The tickets were sold throughout the championships by the Anglia Bowls stewards.
The colour of the flower was black - guessed correctly by Doreen Pfeiffer, the lucky winner of a weekend break for two at Potters Leisure Resort, donated by Brian and Judy Potter.
Daniel Williams, Big C’s chief executive, said: “Big C is delighted to be chosen by Potters Leisure Resort, who do so much to support the local community. Following the recent launch of our Welfare Rights Advice service at James Paget University Hospital Big C is planning to extend the level of support services provided in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area. We want to ensure that cancer patients and carers can get the care and support they require more locally.”
Brian Potter, chairman of Potters Leisure Resort says: “This was another one of Judy’s great ideas that just seem to work – we were both very proud to raise the money this year for such a good cause.”
