The Annual Fixture was played at
Caversham BC on Sunday 16th July and proved to be both enjoyable
and financially successful. In terms of money raised for the Benevolent
Association Fund the sum of £641 was achieved on the day thus maintaining
the 5 year average since the fixture was inaugurated.
Speaking after the game Chairman
of the Benevolent Fund Alan Bartter warmly thanked the Caversham Club for
their strenuous efforts in hosting the game and to all who attended and
supported the occasion so generously. He explained the way in which the
Benevolent Committee operates and confirmed that enquiries for financial
assistance would be welcomed through the proper channels as the Fund is in a
sound financial position.
Thanks also to RCBBA President
David Davies and his Officers for their presence in what is a busy schedule
for them. In the near future a date and venue will be announced for the
2018 renewal. The RCBBA will be out for revenge having suffered a 134 – 104
shot deficit this year!
