On Tuesday 20th July 2021, we welcomed Johnny Vegas to Glassbond (NW) Ltd. In support of the The Steve Prescott Foundation we presented him with ten sets of custom-made bowls kindly supplied by Taylor Bowls Limited for use in the #LolPenningtonMemorialCup.
This was the brainchild of our very own Production Manager – Mark Thompson who was vital in organising the manufacture and supply of the bowls for the event. He was keen to support such a worthwhile cause and his energy and passion regarding the project was clear for all to see. Mark is a local, a massive St Helens fan and on the quiet, fancies himself as a bit of a bowler too, so he was the perfect man for the job!
The bowls will be used by celebrities and the public in a pro-celebrity crown green bowls event, where the highest bidder gets the opportunity to bowl with a chosen celebrity. As a bonus for those taking part, all celebrities and participants will receive the bowls to keep as a memento of the day.
The crown green bowls event will take place at Ruskin Sports Village on Sunday 8th August 2021 at 12pm. Good luck to all involved, hopefully the sun will shine.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Steve Prescott Foundation chosen charities: https://www.steveprescottfoundation.co.uk/about-the-steve-prescott-foundation/charities
A special mention to Bev Dickson and Martin Blondel for organising things with Johnny and supplying bowl designs etc.
