Captain’s Day 2023
The Club Captain is thrilled to share the fantastic news that our recent Captain’s Day fundraising event at Woodingdean Bowls Club was a resounding success! Thanks to the incredible support of our members, we’ve raised an impressive £704, which will be going towards the Chestnut Tree Children’s Hospice.
Chestnut Tree has been the charity we’ve supported for a while now. Last year, in total, we raised £900. We’re hoping to surpass that this year, aiming at £1000.
Nick would like to thank everyone involved with the event, organisers, volunteers and members alike.
UPDATE – 10th August 2023: The total now stands at £945.
