MCT & ROBIN Charity Bowling Event


Monument Community Trust (MCT) and Responsible Oxfordshire Business Involvement Network (ROBIN) jointly hosted the fundraising Charity Bowling event at Oxford’s Bowlplex in April, bringing local charities and Oxfordshire businesses together for the very first time in the Oxfordshire area!

 The event was set up as a chance for local charities to raise their profile, meet potential new business supporters, and have some fun with colleagues, trustees or service users over a game of bowling and buffet meal. The businesses sponsored the lanes so that charity representatives could enjoy a ‘free’ evening of fun, whilst also raising money for Monument Community Trust, to support its work with local charities and community groups.

We welcomed 21 teams made up of 16 local charities:

Nasio Trust & Corum Life Education Centre (tenants of ours in Hampden House), Yellow Submarine, Oxfordshire Advocacy, Style Acre, Child Funeral Charity, SeeSaw, Headway, SOFEA, Aspire, Special Effect, My Life My Choice, Ley’s Community Market, EMBS and Oxfordshire Youth…

…and ten local businesses:

Blake Morgan, Clark Howes, Collaborative Insights, Bluespires Solutions Ltd, Whitley Stimpson, Hunts, NewOrbit (tenant of ours in Hampden House), Colourful Coffins & Bridle Insurance.

including just over 130 guests in total on the night.

The night was a huge success, with well-earned fun.  Top Team Trophy going to Yellow Submarine, Top Striker trophy went to Bob Tomes from Child Funeral Charity and the Big Lime Green Teddy Bear – MCT Mascot was won by Leys Community Market for the Top Fun Team! Congratulations to our winners!

This event brought businesses and charities together for mutual benefit!
