Amazing day at the Strike out Cancer UK doubles event! Incredible event by Cherise Moor and Katie Tagg you ladies did an incredible job. Over £9000 raised through lots of different things. We all know someone who has been affected! Unfortunately, 10 months ago I lost my dad to cancer 💙 with another family battle in the end of last year 💜 so a great event for a great cause ❤️
On the bowling side, with my incredible partner in crime Peter Stevenson, we broke the 1 and 3 game record for mixed doubles with a 579 and 1433. We do like to break a record when bowling together! My super partner had a 300 whilst I backed him up slightly with 279 😊 we finished 2nd in the handicap event (even though I had no handicap 😂) and I’m so incredibly proud. I also managed to win high game, high series and even for 2nd in the scratch pot! Although I’m no longer part of the family, I’m incredibly grateful for my Motiv equipment which still puts me in the position to challenge for a win! #trident #Motivnation
