Grant awarded to short mat bowls club

BOWLED over with generosity are members of an Isle sporting group.

The Isle of Axholme Short Mat Bowls Club has scooped a further cash boost with a grant of £2,000 from the Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire (VANL) Community Pot Funding.

The money will be used to buy more equipment.

Spokesman Robin Wills said: “Thanks to their generosity we are now able to purchase two further mats and associated equipment, giving the club all the equipment necessary for gala days without having to borrow mats etc from other clubs in the county.”
