On May Bank Holiday Monday Worthing Community Chest went to St. Michaels Church to meet High Salvington Short Mat Bowls Club.
Grants Administrator Inga Lielgalve along with Trustees Tom and Malcolm went along to present a a cheque for £864 which the group was awarded to replace one of their mats.The previous mat was over 15 years old and was proving difficult for the members to use.
Inga and Malcolm had the opportunity of using the mat with some bowling practice, Inga was a natural bowler and was invited to join!
Bowling is a great exercise for everyone of all ages and the club always welcome new members.
The funding that High Salvington Bowls Short Mat Club received has certainly made an impact,they can now compete with local clubs in competitions.
If your group or club needs help to replace old equipment maybe Worthing Community Chest can help you. For more information contact Inga Lielgalve, Grants Administrator on 01903 221080 who will guide you through the process.
