Each year Ember Bowls Club hosts a charity night fundraiser, a charity is chosen by the Men’s and Ladies’ Captains - this year’s chosen charity was Princess Alice Hospice.

Malcolm Baird, Men’s Captain said: ‘Princess Alice Hospice was selected as it is a vital, local and very worthy cause. It provides high standards of care and support across the community. We as a club are delighted to be able to support the team towards their yearly costs of over £8 million’.

The event took place on Friday 24 August and saw hundreds of guests enjoy a delicious three-course dinner and an array of entertainment from Paulette Lythall founder member of Quazar, a musical theatre group whose sole purpose is to raise money for charities. A grand raffle, donations, and the ever popular heads and tails game raised a wonderful £1728.

Ashleigh Perfett from Princess Alice Hospice visited the September 10 when it hosted its finals completion and met with Malcolm Baird and Jenny Baird, the Men’s and Ladies’ Captains.

If your local sports group, social club, company or school want to be part of the growing band of Princess Alice Hospice community fundraisers contact or call 01372 461 869.
