Fancy that at White­field

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

The Pope, bat­man and a mas­sive banana were among those who helped White­field Bowl­ing club raise over £3300 for two good causes.

The club held its an­nual Pres­i­dents Char­ity Day on Satur­day (Au­gust 15) to raise money for The Schiehal­lion Unit at Glas­gow’s Royal Hos­pi­tal for Chil­dren and the Beat­son McMil­lan Day Care Cen­tre.

The char­i­ties were cho­sen to sup­port club mem­bers Alex and Dorothy Reynolds, whose grand­son Cal­lum Dalziel (15) suf­fered from Non-Hodgkin Lym­phoma.

Although now is re­mis­sion, Cal­lum’s mum, Maria (47) is cur­rently un­der­go­ing treat­ment for breast can­cer.

Bowlers were in­vited by Pres­i­dent Pat Gal­lagher to take to the green in fancy dress. Tam Devenny as Austin Pow­ers was the fancy dress win­ner, while the bowls win­ners were Ge­orgie O’Ha­gan, Agnes Fitz­patrick, An­drew Faulds and Mark O‘Ha­gan.

As well as raf­fles and fundrais­ing through­out the day, a cabaret event at night was a big hit.

Club sec­re­tary, Dou­glas Knape, said:“Thanks to our spon­sors Ge­orge Munn, and Hef­fer­land Cater­ing, and also Deb­bie Dou­gal who pro­vided the night time en­ter­tain­ment.

“But on be­half of the fam­ily I am sure they would feel that the real he­roes of the day were the mem­bers and visi­tors .”
