The Hopton Bowls Club held a charity day with all money raised going to the local Quidenham Childrens Hospice on Monday, July 28.

Bowlers representing the Dennyside Bowling Association came from Kent, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Northants, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Suffolk enjoyed the sunshine and the hospitality shown to all by the host club. The match was a close affair with Dennyside winning 107 shots to 106.

The Dennyside Bowling Association are a group of bowlers from various parts of the country who visit clubs helping to raise money for many charities

The day was organised by club chairman Chris Leake who had set himself a target of £3,000. This was easily beaten as a total of £4,250 was raised and presented to the hospice representative David Went who explained the work and support they give not only to the children but families as well. There was not a dry eye in the club when the cheque was handed to Mr Went who thanked everyone for their generosity.
