Guide Dogs for The Blind


Plymstock Bowling Club Saturday Evening Quiz Night, on 24th July, got off to an unquestionable great start.

Vera Price, Club Captain for the 2019-2020 Bowls Season presented a cheque for £3100.00 to representatives of Guide Dogs for The Blind.

The sum of money, donated by Club Members and friends, was even more appreciated by GDFTB as it was collected when the club had very little playing time, or fund-raising events due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Pictured are Vera Price, Ladies Captain, Fred Burch, Club President, Carol and Michael Frost, from Guide Dogs for The Blind.






In response to St Luke’s Hospice “Landmark Challenge” to take a “Virtual Walk” from Plymouth to Land’s End and back, Plymstock Bowling Club’s Green Marshall, John Hornsby, decided to give it a go.


Whilst the challenge was initiated by St. Luke’s Hospice as a virtual walk to raise funds, John wanted to raise money to help St. Luke’s Hospice and Motor Neurone Disease Charities in memory of Steve Foster and Roger Martin, two members of the club who had recently passed away.


John walk around Elburton and other areas local to him and within the Covid-19 guidelines, clocking up the distance to simulate walking to Land’s End and back.


John has now completed both legs of the challenge and has raised a total of £1800.00, which he is splitting between the two charities.


John expressed his appreciation to the members of Plymstock Bowling Club and others for their amazing and heart-warming support in enabling him to reach such a target, which was way in excess of the amount he had anticipated.

Friends and family came from as far afield as Newcastle and Essex and were supported in the celebrations by Bowling Club members.

Helen raised a total of £800.00 which she presented, in the form of a huge cheque, to one of Marie Curie’s Plymouth representatives during the bowling club’s Trelawney Night social evening.
