Wendover Bowls Club members raise £650

Members of the Wendover Bowls Club have raised £650 for children and young people with cancer after nominating CLIC Sargent as the club's charity beneficiary for the year.

Every year the club selects a charity to raise funds for, and this year with the help of the Club's Captain, Maureen Warr, CLIC Sargent was the nominated beneficiary.

Throughout the year Maureen and members of the club have pitched together to raise funds to help support children and young people with cancer.

Club members have held collections and also used their games to raise additional funds.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Lucia Martinez, attended the Bowls Club’s Annual Group Meeting where she was presented the cheque for £650 on behalf of CLIC Sargent.

Lucia said: "It was absolute pleasure to be invited along to the bowls club and to meet all the members who had worked so hard to raise funds for CLIC Sargent.

"It was a lovely evening and I’d like to say a massive thank you to everybody involved and for choosing to support children and young people with cancer in this way.’’
