The president of Bowls England made a stop at Batchwood Bowls club – as part of the club’s 50th anniversary.
Michael Jennings arrived with a team containing players from over 15 counties for a six-rink match.
A raffle made £186 for Great Ormond Street Childrens’ Hospital, the chosen charity of Batchwood president Noel Godwin, and £71 was also raised for disabled bowlers, the charity of Jennings.
Despite the weather it was a very enjoyable day with Bowls England winning by 130 shots to 93.
Batchwood won on two rinks with England winning the other four.
