The European Network of Filipino Diaspora – United Kingdom (ENFID-UK), a registered charity in the UK and serves as an active partner of various Filipino community organizations and leaders in the UK that aim to unite them in supporting and achieving different goals and aspirations, is again organizing and sponsoring another one-day charity bowling tournament on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at Airport Bowl located at Bath Road, Harlington Hayes UB3 5AL near Heathrow Airport.
The main objectives are to foster camaraderie between and among ENFID-UK and member organizations and various corporate/individual supporters through health and fitness activities such as bowling and at the same time raise funds for various ENFID-UK charities and free training/reaching out operations both in the UK and the Philippines.
This tournament is an off-shoot of the 1st bowling competition held last March 4, 2018, also at Airport Bowl where 12 Filcoms Teams participated, tightly contested and ultimately won by Camarines Sur Filcom UK and Cavitenos UK Association as the Champion and 1st Runner up, respectively.
