Cockfield Invitation Charity Fours 2018

Cockfield Carpet Bowls Club held their annual charity fours competition on Saturday 10 February.

The competition has been running since 1992 and for the second year running over £900.00 has been raised for charity. This thanks to the hard work of club members, with setting up the hall, baking cakes, supplying a good value ploughman’s lunch and providing teas, coffee etc throughout the day. We must also thank competitors for providing draw prizes and Stanningfield Carpet Bowls Club for providing the flooring.

A full house of: Four Groups with 5 teams competing, bowling started at 9.30am and continued until the final at approximately 17.30.

The four Group winners were:

Group 1 - Nayland

Group 2 - Hundon

Group 3 - Kesgrave

Group 4 - Badwell Ash

The draw for the semi-finals: Nayland 4 v Hundon 3
Kesgrave 4 v Badwell Ash 3

The Final won by Nayland 4 v Kesgrave 2

The Cockfield tournament uses a different format to most competitions, a match is decided on the number of ends won and not the number of shots. The winning four ball were presented with a £15.00 Garden Centre Voucher each and the runners-up a bottle of wine each.

We raised: £960.00 on the day and the club added £40.00.

A cheque for £750.00 will be presented to: My WISH Charity (Every Heart Matters) before the match v Hundon on the 19 March.

A second cheque for £250.00 has been made out to the: Stroke Association SAVG Second Chance

The stroke club meets every Tuesday at Gt Barton Village Hall between 10.00am and Midday. On the 20 March this cheque will be handed over when Diane will be giving a demonstration of Carpet Bowls. She will be using a trolley designed by Colin to help her get back into bowling after her stroke.

All Cockfield Carpet Bowls Club Members are welcome to attend at about 11.00am

Everyone who goes into hospital gets treated with respect and dignity but its when the patient is discharged things seem to fall apart. Stroke patients specially are left to fend for themselves.

Winners: Nayland

Runners-Up: Kesgrave
