Yes, with the clocks back and Christmas on the horizon it really is that time of year already: the Harris Hill Charity Series bowling night returns tonight and it's one of the most hotly-contested inter-charity contests there is!
The good folks at Rowans Bowling in Finsbury Park will be hosting us once again, with no less than 36 charities battling it out for the coveted crown. We'll even be having a go ourselves, though on past form we'd like to reassure everyone that the sponsors will have absolutely no impact on the top of the table - 32nd would be an improvement!
Last year saw some highly impressive scoring though - VSO took third place with 693 points, Action on Hearing Loss were second with 699, but way out in front were Age UK with a staggering 895 points - can anyone challenge that tonight?
More photos and scores from last year below, and as ever a huge thank you to the legendary organising committee who make the whole thing happen - see you this evening and may the best team win!
