Clevedon & District Bowling Association has a new sponsor, Britannia Windows, who stepped in after Co-op Funeralcare ended their five-year association.

The last two weeks has seen some frantic action by Clevedon & District Bowling Association secretary, Roger Spragg.

The loss, after five years, of Co-op Funeralcare as sponsors of the association meant a rapid letter writing session and delivery to hand-picked possibilities for sponsorship in 2018.

Within 48 hours all concerns were quickly assuaged as local Clevedon business, Britannia Windows, stepped in with a firm offer.

Co-op Funeralcare were thanked for their support throughout the five years and as a closing gesture Ronnie Baker, the Nailsea Co-op Funeralcare representative, travelled with Roger Spragg to present a cheque for Dementia UK to the Isle of Wedmore club.

Winnings from the C&D Over-60s League and Charity Cup, together with Weston & District Over-60s League and Somerset County League promotion, brought the Isle of Wedmore Club donation up to £1,338.

More could be added as the C&D Over-60s Knockout Cup was not completed in 2017 due to hailstones covering the green at Portishead last September. The final has already been set for the afternoon of May 2.

Once again many thanks are due to Co-op Funeralcare for their past sponsorship and to Britannia Windows for appreciating the efforts of all club bowlers in the association for donating more than £20,000 to local charities over the last 17 years and enabling this to continue through their support.
