BREAST CANCER DAY 8th March 2015
Approximately 6 months ago our Lady Captain approached Irene Ashby and Sylvia Day and Gently coerced us into doing something for the Breast Cancer Charity.
We got our heads together and decided that we would use the club to its maximum potential, rather than do a half hearted affair.
Firstly, we had to formulate a programme for the day and get the board to sanction it. Whilst this was being discussed by the Board, we worked on filling the day with FUN ideas.
With many friends at the club offering help and ideas, we got a plan together and contacted the Breast Cancer Charity and got balloons, banners, info cards and supportive help.
We were astounded by the Prince Arthur Board decision to grant us a £300 gift and all raffle proceeds!!!! This was a brilliant start to the campaign.
We had a cake stall suggested by Lina Foster, which sold slices of cake donated by many, many ladies, for 50p and these disappeared as quick as the players came in the door!!!
(We should have charged them £1!!!!)
The day started off with the pink ladies drawn triples.
Then came Tea
After tea everyone had to change bowls with a person in their team. This was great fun, the only trouble was that most of us played better with somebody else’s bowls!!!.
We had great fun and this was a good start to a brilliant day.

We had a wonderful response from Thameside Wanderers who joined in the day with pink shirts and pink wigs. They also bought many bands and cakes as well.
Finally, we would like to send special thanks to cake donators, also John Mercer for pictures, Malcolm and Lesley Clark for help on the day and anyone else who helped make this a great day.
Also, thanks for the generosity of Nicola in the rink 9 restaurant for allowing us to sell our own cakes.
