Melton and District Indoor Bowls Club event has helped raise £500 to combat mental health problems.
David Fry, immediate past president of the Leicester Road-based club, used his President’s Day Gala to raise funds for his chosen charity, For Rutland – In Rutland” (FR-IR), specifically for their work with mental health issues.
More than 70 club members took part in a fun bowls afternoon organised by a team led by gala secretary Eva Radford.
During the post-bowls meal David announced the excellent total and emphasised the important work carried out by the charity in both Rutland and the Melton borough.
FR-IR was launched in June 2014 as a fundraising group for Citizens Advice, Rutland, to generate funds for an advisor who offers free, confidential and impartial advice to local people affected by cancer, dementia, strokes and other long-term health conditions.
Elizabeth Mills, representing the charity, thanked the members for their generosity.
