Marie Curie Strike it Lucky at Battle of the Balls Fundraiser

May 9, 2023 | TC blog, TC news

We are delighted to announce that we raised a magnificent £7,000 for our Charity of the Year Marie Curie at our recent ten pin bowling event held at Hollywood Bowl in Dunfermline.

We had 22 teams take on the ‘Battle of the Balls’ challenge, fighting it out for the ‘Best Team’ and ‘Best Individual’ titles.

The highest scoring team were Sephra Europe Limited and the highest scoring player was Will Burns from Shand and Burns Financial Ltd.

Our guests had the opportunity to win some awesome prizes in the raffle and the chance to bid on some luxury experiences. The team from the Cress Company Limited hosted a bake sale at their premises and raised almost £1000 to add to the total, and we had other generous donations from clients who couldn’t attend on the night. Our staff also got involved with their own raffle and auction too.

Charlotte Gilbert, Community Fundraiser at Marie Curie UK, commented, “We had so much fun bowling and everyone showed a tremendous amount of support throughout the night. Thank you to everyone who donated and supported Thomson Cooper. They have fundraised the equivalent of 350 hours of community nursing care for those with a terminal Illness. On behalf of Marie Curie, thank you so much.”

Marie Curie provide care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families and last year they cared for over 40,000 people across the UK. The monies we raised will be spent in Scotland helping families here.

We were very grateful for the tremendous selection of prizes and experiences donated by many generous businesses within our client and networking circles which enabled us to hold both raffles and auctions so everyone could get involved.

Huge thanks to all these generous businesses for their donations –
