At their AGM on Tuesday 12th November 2019, Rugby Police Bowls Club presented a cheque for £ 1,462.28 to Anita Burrows, the Community Fundraiser for The Myton Hospices.
The money was raised by the club with some help from members of other bowls clubs, throughout the Rugby area. Rugby Police Bowls Club members donated bottles and other prizes, to be raffled at matches and other fund-raising events. These included, a very successful club meal and summer barbecue, arranged by members, together with collections at internal competitions within the club. Additional money was also collected on this years' annual, long weekend tour to South Devon.
The charity was chosen this year, as Rugby Police Bowls Club's Past President, Secretary and Match Secretary, Ray Candelent, sadly passed away in November 2018. The charity had provided support for him and his late wife Joy, during her illness six years ago. As well as, in the past, having supported other members of the club, together with fellow bowlers from within the town and further afield.
In her thanks to the club, Anita gave a brief talk of the services that Myton have to offer, at no cost, to their patients and families. She explained the difference that the money would make and the types of expenses that it would help to cover, as well as some of the new services that The Myton Hospices have recently introduced, to cover the needs of a wider community.
