Charity Evening 25th February 2017

Bedfordshire County Carpets Bowls Association (BCCBA) held a very successful Charity evening at The Rufus Centre on Saturday 25th February.

This event came about as one of our county players, Robert Macdonald and his wife Katy had prematurely born twins a year ago, George and Amelia.

Great Ormond Street and The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of Luton and Dunstable Hospital were chosen. Both were involved with the twins and their representatives were present to give talks.

A raffle was held and some of the many prizes donated included a day pass to Center Parcs, afternoon tea at Flitwick Manor, a voucher from Potters Resort Norfolk and a voucher on a T&D bowling holiday donated by the BCCBA chairman Mike Walker.

The raffle combined with a £1 coin competition along with donations amounted to £1310.00 which was divided between the two charities.

The twins were present along with parents, friends and many carpet bowls club members from across Bedfordshire.

All were entertained and danced to the band Mundi Knights which George Savage is a member of, who provided music from 60s, 70s and 80s.

The Rufus centre provided an excellent buffet, a very enjoyable evening had by all.
