Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

GEN­EROS­ITY: Elaine Ball (left) with Brenda An­der­son, pres­i­dent of Den­ham Bowls Club, and Lawrie Smethurst, pres­i­dent of Den­ny­side Bowl­ing As­so­ci­a­tion TWO sport clubs have raised hun­dreds of pounds for a chil­dren’s can­cer char­ity.

Den­ham Bowls Club and Den­ny­side Bowl­ing As­so­ci­a­tion held a day of bowl­ing at Den­ham’s ground, in Den­ham Way, ear­lier this month, fol­lowed by din­ner in the evening. Do­na­tions were col­lected from play­ers and added to funds al­ready raised by the Den­ham club dur­ing the past few months.

The to­tal raised for Thomas Ball Chil­dren’s Can­cer Fund has now reached £2,200.

The char­ity was set up in mem­ory of 14-year-old Thomas Ball, a for­mer Mis­bourne School pupil, who died of can­cer in 2003.

His mother, Elaine, vis­ited the club to re­ceive the do­na­tion.

“I was amazed to re­ceive such a mas­sive amount of money. This will re­ally make a dif­fer­ence to our work and will be used to ben­e­fit chil­dren with can­cer and leukaemia,” she said.

“I would like to thank Den­ham Bowls Club for choos­ing us as their char­ity for this year and Den­ny­side Bowl­ing As­so­ci­a­tion for their con­tri­bu­tions on the evening.”
