Rugby Police Bowls Club have presented a cheque for £1,462 to Anita Burrows, the Community Fundraiser for the Myton Hospices.

The money was raised by the club with some help from bowls clubs, throughout the Rugby area at matches and other events, as well as the annual long weekend tour to South Devon.

The charity was chosen this year as Rugby Police Bowls Club’s Past President, Secretary and Match Secretary Ray Candelent, sadly passed away in November 2018. The charity had provided support for him and his late wife Joy, during her illness six years ago, as well as to other bowlers in the past.

Secretary Rosemarie Geden said: “In the past ten years, this is the fifth occasion that the club has chosen the Myton Hospices. For a small club such as ours, this is an outstanding effort, of which all members should be very proud and I would like to thank everyone their continued generosity and support.”
