A team from Kewstoke Short Mat Bowls Club won a charity event held at Hardwicke.

Two teams from Kewstoke Short Mat Bowls Club went to Hardwicke to compete in their ladies’ triples charity tournament which was held in aid of Hope for Tomorrow, which funds mobile chemotherapy units.

Over the past 10 years the charity has managed to raise enough money to fund 11 mobile units.

This is the 12th year that Hardwicke has been holding this event, which has always been in aid of a cancer charity and teams are expected to wear something pink. The tournament consisted of 14 teams playing four games each in a round robin format.

The team from Kewstoke consisting of Rene Morgan, Mary Baxter and Marian Greenwell won all their games, the only team to achieve maximum points. The only other club who could have beaten Kewstoke was Biddisham, who unfortunately managed to lose their last game heavily.

Kewstoke meet on a Wednesday afternoon from 2pm and a Friday evening from 6.30pm at Kewstoke Village Hall.
