Springhill Hospice Mixed Pairs Bowling Competition
David Williamson and Margaret Jackson from Milnrow Ladybarn BC took on Nikki & Phil Mellor of Thistleyfield BC to decide the winner of Springhill Hospice’s annual Mixed Pairs Bowling Competition at Castlefield Bowling Club on Sunday 20th September.
The sun didn’t quite break through the clouds on finals day but thankfully the weather stayed dry, allowing 16 pairs of bowlers from clubs all around the borough to turn their hobby into help for Springhill Hospice. Thistleyfield’s Nikki and Phil were victorious, holding the much coveted crystal trophy high with Springhill Hospice being the big winners overall as on the day the event raised a £550 which, once added to the total raised by all the clubs from their own qualifying competitions, raising nearly £1700 overall.
“This event was the first I’ve attended since starting as Community Support Fundraiser at Springhill” said Kate Bennetta, “and what a lovely event to get involved with. I’m really looking forward to doing it all again next year when the finals will be held at Harehill Bowling Club, Littleborough on Sunday 18th September.” Would your club like to get involved next year?
