Bowls team match raises £500 for charity
by Tom Martin

STAFF from a Thornton pub who challenged a local bowls team to a match have raised nearly £500 for charity.

Those working behind the bar at the Nags Head faced off against the Sefton and Thornton Bowls Team as part of a fundraiser.

They managed to raise £223 each for two local charities, being the Riding for Disabled and Sefton Women's and Children's Aid (SWACA) and the money was handed over in a presentation held recently.

Eric Smith, who took part said: “Both charities were grateful for the help that we were able to give. A good time was had by all and we look forward to our next tournament next year.”
