Race Night and Winter Socials Feedback


Dear Members

I am absolutely delighted to inform you that we raised over £800 on our recent Race Night! Massive thanks go to you all who supported the evening and your bowling club. Thanks also for bringing along your guests who made up a quarter of the audience on the night. Massive thanks also go to Mike McCrossan who managed to obtain over £400 (half of what we made) from sponsorship of the races and the horses from our local community businesses here in Lyndhurst and beyond. This included some individuals who also sponsored the evening including our own club members thank you all.

Of course appreciating others such as Sarah and Sue who took all the bets, odds on all of the races and finances and Joyce and the social team for all their organising efforts.

Please if you were unable to make this fundraising event could I ask for your support (and your guests) at our many summer Club Night Themed Evenings arranged. Details at the end of this post, or on the website and full details on the socials notice board in the clubhouse. With ever increasing costs at our Club all support for events is very gratefully received, as is your loyalty. Our winter socials in 2023 – so far that is Skittles, Quiz Night and then the Race Night – have raised just over £1555 for our Club, a fantastic effort so let’s try and keep this up! But of course also enjoy ourselves at the Bowling Club at the same time during this season and summer warmer months.

Thank you kindly members
