Bogleha Bowling Takes Fundraising Total to over £16,000

a group of 6 mean and women pose in front of an sbh scotland bannerstand in the middle of a bowling greenBowlers from across Cowal, Glasgow, Renfrewshire and the Kingdom of Fife travelled to Bogleha' Bowling Club on Saturday 27 April for their 11th annual charity invitation mixed triples, competing for the Lynda Weir Memorial Trophy. 

This popular tournament is the regular curtain raising tournament in the Cowal outdoor bowling calendar, and the players were blessed with glorious sunshine throughout the day. 

At the close of the day's play, tournament organiser Jess Weir on behalf of the Weir family expressed her extreme gratitude to all those who had supported the competition once again so early in the new season and hoped that next year's tournament would be a similar success. Following the raffle, Jess invited Lynda's mum Nessie Weir, to present the prizes and trophy. 

At the conclusion of the prize giving, Jess thanked those who had donated so generously to the enormous raffle and superb afternoon tea, those who had competed in the 'spider' or bought raffle tickets and to those who had assisted with the green, photographs, the bar and the catering. There were also some private donations made on the day for which Jess expressed her sincere appreciation. 

Jess was delighted to announce the final charity total raised on the day for this year's event was an overwhelming £1,600. This total was further swelled by matched funding from a high street bank, meaning the charity will benefit to the sum of £2,600. This sum will generously be donated to Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland, where the money will be used to improve the lives of those affected by these rare, complex disabilities. This now brings the total raised for the charity over the past eleven tournaments to over £16,000. 

Lynsey Hamilton, Fundraising Manager for SBH Scotland said,

"We are truly thankful for the continued support of the Weir family as well as their extended bowls family. To have raised so much for us is a true testament to the generosity of the bowling community and is a lovely tribute to Lynda. The provision of dedicated support for children, young people and adults is only possible because of fundraising and this money will directly will go towards our lifetime commitment of support. Thank you."

Finally, Bogleha' President Stevie Scott thanked the Weir family for their efforts in the club's first tournament of the season and wished everyone all the very best for the summer ahead.
