Gorey Boys Christmas petanque doubles tournament!
If you headed west of the island this weekend you may have come across a very exciting event with the Gorey Boys Christmas petanque doubles tournament taking place which in total raised £770.10 for us here at Headway Jersey!
Always popular, this knockout tournament this time round had 30 players taking each other on all in good humour and was won by “Taylor Made” (Richard Taylor & David Radcliffe) who played “The Petanque Shop Boys” (John Thwaites & Barry Radcliffe) in the final. Following this they all headed for a well deserved Xmas lunch at the Bass & Lobster followed by a festive quiz and as you can see from the photos of the day a good time was had by all there was even an impromptu arm wrestling competition!
Everyone played their part with special mentions to 1st Recruitment for helping making it happen, Jersey Petanque Association (JPA) for loaning the boules, The Bank House who put up a raffle prize (£30 meal voucher) and Bruno’s Bakery who also kindly provided pies and cakes in the morning!
Its a huge testament to the community of Gorey who were fantastic with their support and very being very generous helping the total reach over £700 pounds which means so much to us here. – Truly an example of “Headway Heros”
