The NBF and several of its Yorkshire-based members were out in force on 24th November as they participated in a bowling night in Bradford to raise awareness of the industry’s charity, The Furniture Makers’ Company.
The NBF secretariat, known on the night as the Skipton Skittlers, were up against the stiff competition of Dewsbury-based Jay-Be (Jay-Be Flyers) and Mirfield-based John Cotton Nonwovens (The Thunderballers).
The event, organised by Peter Hewitt, the charity’s events and fundraising ambassador of the Yorkshire region, proved a great success with winners from each company clinching coveted titles and prizes.
Winning team – Jay-Be Flyers
Highest scoring woman – Jessica Alexander, Skipton Skittlers (NBF)
Women’s runner-up – Asha Gallagher, Skipton Skittlers (NBF)
Highest scoring man – Stephen Durrans, Jay-Be Flyers
Men’s runner-up – Mark Baron, The Thunderballers (John Cotton Nonwovens)
The evening ended with an informal meal followed by an awards presentation with Peter Hewitt and the NBF’s Jessica Alexander (photos below).
The charity is hopeful this will become an annual fundraising event for Yorkshire-based companies across the furnishing industry.
