Bowls Club raised �400 at charity match, even though rain stopped play

SPIRITS were not dampened when rain stopped play at the Outdoor GER Bowls Club on Sunday, when a charity match was due to take place in memory of former member Ivy Norton.

Due to the bad weather, the game could not take place, but the event turned into a social, with plenty of food and drink on offer.

Around �400 was raised, to be divided between the Cancer Research and the Stroke Association.

Artist Mr John Abbott presented three paintings for the club rooms, and also gave a landscape painting as a raffle prize.
