Presentation of cheque to KAB

Monday 24th June 2013 2:26 pm

Herne Bay Bowls Club held their annual Charity Day on Saturday at which a cheque for £3,800 was presented to Chrissie Keeley, representing the Charity Kent Association for The Blind. The money was primarily raised by the club over the past year as sponsorship for the London Marathon run that current Captain Bill Robb did in April of this year. With on line donations and gift aid added, the total KAB will receive is £4,765. Bill had decided to run the marathon on behalf of KAB as his granddaughter Hallie 2 and a half was born blind. Hallie and her family have received tremendous support from the Charity. Ms. Keeley thanked members of the club for the efforts they had made and said it was a fantastic amount raised for the Charity.

The day which included fun events, tombola and raffles, concluded with a mixed drive and raised in the region of £800 for this year’s Charity The Stroke Association.
