Eastbourne Motoring Centre Charity Fund Raiser Success!
More than 50 teams drawn from businesses and clubs from around the town entered the inaugural Rotary Club Skittles Competition held at the Saffrons in Eastbourne over a week of action packed fun.
Using seven specially-built skittles lanes, each team played two matches with the combined total of skittles bowled in each match providing their final score.
Eastbourne Motoring Centre were the overall winners with an almost untouchable score of 307. Runners up were the Lansdowne Hotel, followed by the family of Simon Reed on 278 and the all-male team ‘Young at Heart’ with 276.

The Rotary Club was bowled over by the level of support, with players of all ages and abilities competing including a wheelchair bound team from the Bevern Trust and a blind player guided by his companions and a guide dog. Friendship groups, sports clubs, local businesses and families all put forward teams.
The event raised over £2000 which will be distributed to local charities through the Rotary Club’s benevolent fund.
‘What a fantastic result for the Rotary Club and local charities’, said Mark Lambird CEO, ‘we are thrilled to have won this prestigious competition and would like to thank everyone that took part, the organisers and the Saffrons for hosting such a great event. We look forward to defending our title next year!’.
