Crown green bowls match raises funds for hospice

A CLUB in Ashton-under-Lyne held a crown green bowls match to raise funds for the local hospice.

Despite the soggy, wet and muddy bowling green, locals battled it out throughout the day last Sunday, October 8, to scoop the cup prize.

It was won by Stephen Radcliffe, after he beat John McGhee in the final round.

The match was organised by Waterloo and Taunton Conservative Club, who raised a fantastic £320 for Willow Wood Hospice.

The hospice provides free, specialist palliative care for patients with life-limiting illnesses in Tameside and Glossop.

Leon Tamcken, Chairman of Waterloo and Taunton Conservative Club, said: “A huge thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser, which is now in its eighth year of being sponsored by Tameside Glass Ltd.

“I would also like to thank Rob Bailey, Manager at Howarth Timber, the UK timbers merchants in Ashton-under-Lyne, for their kind donation of wooden boards to get the crown green looking tip top for the event.”
