On a gloriously sunny Saturday 1st August, the ladies of Lindfield bowling club, hosted by captain Vera Stevens, held a charity Ladies Captain’s Day in aid of Breast Cancer Now.
Twelve teams from all over Sussex attended, dressed in pink for the charity. Following a light lunch, they played in five different challenges with the overall winner being the ladies of St Francis bowling club. Over the course of the day players had the opportunity to buy tickets for the raffle, lucky dip, plant pot auction, jewellery sale and a chance to win a bottle of champagne.
Following the game, they sat down to a superb meal prepared by a team of ladies from the club. Following speeches and prizes, they also had the opportunity to bid for homemade cakes provided by club members. Tese actions gave the club a grand total of over £1k for the Breast Cancer Now charity.
On Sunday morning, 2nd August, the club hosted the annual fun event with The Lindfield Club. This raised £265 for St Peter’s and St James Hospice. Earlier in the season Men’s Captain’s Day raised £651 for their charity.
