A call had gone out for teams to compete in the two-round competition and the Ham & Eggers signed on the dotted line to try to best the Mayor!

On the night the team were unable to win the whole event, but did finish in a creditable 3rd place in the 11 team field. Nina from our team did manage to bag a win in the raffle and received a £10 Amazon gift voucher. The evening of bowling and the raffle raised a total of £700 for the Mayor of Luton’s three charities in 2012 - The Lister Kidney Foundation, Keech Hospice Care and Action for Kids.
