Tarring Priory Bowls Club has raised a further £120 for Guild Care by fining players for misdemeanours. This brings the amount raised by the club this year to just under a thousand pounds. Offences fined (all in good fun!) include turning up late, wearing the wrong kit, and playing a bowl on the wrong bias

This donation comes after the club raised an incredible £824 for Guild Care on Thursday 19th July with a bowls and curry evening for local businesses. After Keith Brinsmead was appointed as the club’s first Chairman, he decided to fundraise for a local charity and chose Guild Care after a close relative was a resident in their Haviland House care home.

The event saw supporting businesses such as B&W Loudspeakers, Alexander Kitchens, Shafiques Restaurant, Wannops Solicitors, Carpenter Box Chartered Accountants, Marshalls Carpets plus other organisations from further afield, come together for a fun evening of bowls and food.

Keith said, “We were delighted to have England International Keith Renwick, a former TPBC bowler join us and play with novices and hope that we can have more stars join us for future fundraising events. Thank you to all the businesses who came out and helped us support such a worthwhile charity.”

Corporate Fundraiser Helen Tidball, a novice to the game, gave it a go. She said, “The sun was shining, local companies had turned out to play to raise money for Guild Care and the amazing work that we do throughout the year for our local community. With a curry provided from Shafiques in Worthing afterwards, this topped the evening off for us.”
