Rubery crown bowls club raises £425 for Birmingham's St Mary's Hospice

A RUBERY-based bowls club are ‘in the pink’ after raising £425 for Birmingham’s St Mary’s Hospice.

Members of Rubery Sheldon John Connelly (RSJC) crown green bowls club wore pink and some unusual costumes during their three Warwick and Worcester League matches, as did their opponents Old Cross, Thimblemill and Wythall bowls clubs.

Usual player subscriptions from all teams were donated to the cause and further funds were raised through a cake bake and sale by Wythall, a raffle during the Old Cross game at Warley Green and additional donations.

This was the second event of its type after a similar one in 2019.

RSJC club secretary Ellen Aindow said he was delighted with the total.

“Last time we were happy to have raised £150, but this time we’ve really smashed that.

“We’ll aim for even more next year.”

A cheque will be sent to St Mary’s Hospice in due course.
