A bowls league in Northumberland is hoping it is not the end after securing a sponsorship package from a national funeral provider.
The Northern Bowls League has received sponsorship for £500 from the Co-operative Funeral Care, as well as the promise of sponsorship for a one-day competition, scorecards and banners.
The Northern Bowls League has operated for more than 25 years and still provides a high standard of competitive league and competitions to 21 clubs in the south east Northumberland area.
Colin Brown, from the league, said: “We are very grateful to the manager Doug Potts, and the Co-operative Funeral Care for their very kind and generous support in sponsoring the Northern Bowls League for the 2014 bowling season.
“We look forward to our games and future competitions under their sponsorship.”
