Oliver Phillips and Matt Dempsey were on opposing teams, Tayabali Tomlin & White and McTear Williams & Wood respectively, at the Cambridge Leisure Park where all 28 lanes were filled with local businesses from accountants, solicitors and estate agents. Matt scored respectably and Oliver less so, but both struck out on the charity raffle as part of the Handelsbanken bowling event which raised more than £4,000 for its chosen charities.
Oliver then swapped his bowling shoes for a dinner jacket and joined Paul Dixon to try their luck at blackjack, roulette and wheel of fortune along with other COEL clients and contacts at 12a Club. Oliver was a winner last year but over-confidence was his downfall this time – John Russell of Cater Jonas taking the gambler crown with the most COEL dollars in his pocket at the end. It was a rocking night, with excellent company, music and food to accompany the fun (but professionally managed) gaming tables.
