We had a visit from Dennyside Bowling Association – gentlemen who tour the country raising money for the chosen charity of clubs where they play.
We enjoyed some good bowling and every Crablands player was gifted a bowls towel, badge and pen. Dennyside won 107-100 but a great day was enjoyed by everyone.
We were so lucky to be able to host this generous Association as they raised a wonderful £1300 for our Charity of the year, Prostate Cancer. Captain of the day, Richard Green gave an excellent speech and urged all men to get checked out for this disease. Monies from a fabulous raffle, a “spider”, a “guess the shot difference” and a table collection all combined to raise this fantastic sum. Grateful thanks to everyone from Dennyside.
