Keen bowlers have celebrated a £2,000 cash boost, thanks to an East Sussex care home. The Hailsham Bowls Club will use the money from Abbots Wood Manor Care Home to continue to keep the club flourishing. It will be the second year the home has supported the popular club.

To celebrate the ongoing sponsorship deal, the Vicarage Lane club invited Customer Relations Manager Richard Hollands from Abbots Wood Manor to visit the club and discuss future plans at its annual open day event.

Club Chairman Trevor Hill said he was delighted that Abbots Wood Manor is the main sponsor for 2024.

He added: “I am thrilled and delighted that Abbots Wood Manor has continued with the much-needed support and we look forward to welcoming residents to the club for an afternoon tea and to watch a game or two of bowls.”

Hailsham Bowls Club was established in 1923, and last year, when it celebrated its centenary, it introduced a new club shirt also endorsed by the London Road care home.

Richard, a regular visitor to the club, said: “This is an important local club and is at the heart of the community, and many members live locally.

“Bowls are a super way to keep fit, but they also provide an opportunity to socialise and enjoy the outdoors on the lovely greens.

“We are delighted to support them.”

The club and the home have established strong bonds with club members using the care home rooms for meetings during the winter months.
