Each year the Cawston Bowls League nominates one of its’ clubs to raise funds for a charity, culminating in a President’s Day at the club’s home bowling green.  In 2023, it was the turn of Lakeside Pilgrims Bowls Club.  Their chosen charity was the Alzheimer’s Society and they raised an amazing amount of £4060.  President’s Day was held on Saturday 02 September 2023 at Bawdeswell green commencing at 13.30.

The afternoon started with a “spider” competition and the bottle of whisky was won by one of our members, Gillian Blyth.

24 blocks from the 11 clubs in the league then participated in a round robin competition.  We entered three blocks as follows:  Block 1 Jan Hockley, Frank Moore, Ruth Hannent.  Block 2 Peter Lilwall, Patsy Catchpole, Craig Ledbury.  Block 3 Dennis Farthing, Gillian Blyth, Colin Harris.

At the end of the afternoon, the Cawston Cup shield which had been won by Bintree in the 2023 season was presented to our president, Richard Johnson, along with a cheque for £60 which we donated to the Lakeside charity.

The weather was lovely and there was a wonderful spread of food and drinks available.  Well done Lakeside !!!!
