Hewell Bowling Club gets 1,000 boost
2:00pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
MORE than £1,000 has been donated to Hewell Bowling Club.
The club, Established in 1914 by the Earl of Plymouth, meets the day to day running costs itself but was struggling to find the cash to pay for much needed new steps and a storage shed.
Members of the club, in Holyoakes Lane Tardebigge, decided to approach local businesses for help and The Co-operative Funeralcare answered.
Club president Martin Lawrence said: “Hewell is an active bowling club with league and social bowling.
“In order to meet the needs of our members we set about contacting local businesses and organisations for funding and we were delighted when The Co-operative Funeralcare offered to help.”
One of a handful of bowling clubs in the Redditch and Bromsgrove areas, the club is owned by its members and is open to new and experienced bowlers of all ages and abilities.
Joy Welch, from Midlands Co-operative, said: “This is a great example of a local club that brings the people of Redditch together.
“Our funeral home is at the centre of the community and we are delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile local project in this way.”
