Judy’s cream jacket raises £2,500 for the Potters Friends Foundation

News From Resort

Spectators attending the Just 2019 World Indoor Bowls Championships, hosted at Potters Resort for 17 days from 11th to 27th January, were given the opportunity to enter a competition to guess the style of jacket worn by Mrs Judy Potter at the Open Singles Final.

Judy is known for her beautiful collection of jackets, with Judy wearing a different jacket every day she attended the live bowls action, providing a fun competition and the perfect opportunity to raise money for worthy causes in the Potters community. 

The jacket worn by Judy at the World Bowls Open Singles Final on Sunday 27th January 2019 was cream, as guessed correctly by Carol Selwyn from Cromer, who is the lucky winner of a fantastic inclusive Weekend Break for two at the five star Potters Resort.

The tickets were sold throughout the Championships by the World Bowls Stewards and, along with money raised from seat cushion hire and programmes, £2,500 was raised to donate to the Potters Friends Foundation in memory of Brian Potter MBE. 

We caught up with Judy, a director at the Resort, who said: “This year’s Championships were a huge success and it never ceases to amaze me just how generous our guests and spectators are when it comes to supporting charity. A massive thank you to everyone who came along to watch the Championships and support the Potters Friends Foundation.”

Potters Friends Foundation is a community interest company, supporting worthy causes and acts of kindness in the local community. In 2018, donations from the Potters Friends Foundation to local charities and projects included donating a £10,000 car to Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) and working closely with Nelsons Journey on its Twenty20 campaign. The Foundation has already pledged to purchase another car for NARS in 2019 to continue its life-saving work.
