The club held a gala day at Kingsway Park in Kirkby in August, where 24 teams of three bowlers played in an outdoor bowling competition. The club put on food and held a raffle, which is where the money for the hospice was raised.

Treasurer Glennis Else said that despite it being their first such event, the day went very well.
