A bowls club in south east Northumberland has raised more than £1,500 for charity with a marathon bowls event.

Members of Newbiggin Bowls Club held a ‘Dawn to Dusk’ event on the longest day of the year – June 21 – to raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance.

And a cheque for £1,513 was handed over to Pat Ford from the Great North Air Ambulance at the club last week.

Club member Bob Richardson, who organised the event, said: “We are grateful to everyone who sponsored and supported us throughout the day, especially the club’s ladies’ section who prepared, served and sold refreshments, ran the tombola and domino card sales with all the monies raised adding to the overall total.”
