Terry’s day raises cash for St Catherine’s

The Scarborough News - - SPORTS -

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.
