Terry’s day raises cash for St Catherine’s
The inaugural Terry Summersgill Memorial Match took place at Borough Bowling Club in Manor Road, Scarborough, on Saturday.
Fourteen crown green bowlers from Borough took on 14 bowlers from North Cliff.
The late Summersgill played for both clubs from the 1990s until his death earlier this yesar.
The game was always intended to be a social event with a raffle and tea and cakes to raise funds for St Catherine’s Hospice, which caredfor Terry Summersgill in his final days.
Borough won eight out of the 10 matches – a mixture of singles and doubles – played to take home the trophy. The day raised £551. A merit was held at Robin Hood’s Bay Bowling Club on Sunday.
It donated its charity car parking fund of £235 to the fund, which means a total of £786 will be donated to St Catherine’s Hospice.
“It was a great day,” said president of Borough Bowling Club Dave Pryce.
“Our thanks go to everyone who played, attended, helped, baked cakes and scones, donated raffle prizes and bought raffle tickets.
“We had a good day, won the trophy , and raised £551 to donate to St Catherine’s Hospice in Terry’s name.”
It is hoped the match will be played again next year.
Mr Pryce handed the trophy to Pete Charter from the Borough team.
Ed McCormack captained the team from North Cliff.
