More power to the youngsters at Gallow Indoor Bowls Club
Youngsters at a Fakenham indoor club are on a roll after receiving a donation from UK Power Networks.
The company, which delivers electricity to eight million customers across East Anglia, London and the South East, has given the club a much-needed £250 grant as part of its Team Sport Award programme.
It donated the money to Gallow Indoor Bowls Club following an application from employee Jeff Tucker, who is the junior coach and whose daughter Shannon plays for Gallow in various teams.
Jeff, a field staff superviser, said: “I have coached the eight- to 16 year-old juniors at the club weekly for the past year, but we have needed to borrow some of the equipment for our sessions. We are planning to use the money to buy training aids for the children including a foam scoring wedge and bowls jacks. It will help the children to develop their overall game concentrating on line and length of delivery of the bowls.”
