A children’s sports club which closed down recently has donated £8,000 to charities.
The Grampian Junior Bowling Association, which catered for young people aged 9-17, was forced to close after seats on the committee were left vacant.
The team was set up in 2005 to encourage young people to get into the sport of indoor and outdoor bowling. With the decision to close, the association took the decision to spread the group’s remaining funds to local charities and community organisations.
The group donated £1,500 to Assistance Dogs, £1,500 to CLAN Aberdeen, £1,500 to Ward 207 at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, and £1,500 to Newmachar First Responders.
It also gave £1,000 to Real Life Options Fraserburgh, £700 to Disability Bowlers Inverurie and £300 to Bucksburn Defibrillator.
Former president of the association Frank Philip said: “I just want to thank the people that have helped us over the years – a lot of good work has been done by a lot of good people.”
