Crawley’s bowls festival a success raising money for charity



The Bowls Festival Cup event involved the six outdoor clubs of Crawley:

The Downsman, Popes Mead, Southgate Park, The Hawth, Crawley Town and the Blind & Disabled Bowlers.

Over a three week period, the competing teams played each other to raise money for the Mayor’s Charities. 

The final series of matches was held on Thursday 22nd August at The Downsman Bowls Club, West Green.

Mayor of Crawley, Councillor Raj Sharma was in attendance for the award ceremony, receiving a cheque for £535 for his two charities, The Posh Club & Manor Green College.

It was, as always, a privilege to play bowls and to raise money for the Mayor’s charities at the same time.  This year the event was won by The Downsman Bowls Club in a very tight finish.
