The Galleywood Short Mat Bowls Club has organised a ‘Bowlathon’ to raise money for charity. Members took part in four-hourly sessions over a twelve hour period. The entry fee was £5 and a raffle helped to swell the funds. Club chairman John Hayward said ‘We had an excellent day.’ All those who participated enjoyed themselves and we raised over £330 for the Parkinsons Disease Society and BLISS – Baby Life Support Appeal.
