Fancy that at Whitefield
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 .”
