Studley Bowls Club gets boost from McCarthy Stone

Redditch Editorial 30th Jun, 2024   0

A BOWLS club in Studley has received a £600 boost from a retirement housebuilder towards several projects to improve its facilities.

The team behind the McCarthy Stone retirement living development at Priory Place on Alcester Road, donated the cash to Studley Entaco Bowls Club as part of a 12-month sponsorship deal.

Proudly home to 50 active members, some of whom have competed at county and national competitions, the club on Eldorado Close has been a prominent feature in the Studley community for more than seven decades.

Relies on donations

As a Community Amateur Sports Club, it relies solely on fundraising and donations which are used to upgrade its facilities ‘for the benefit of all’.

The club will put the £600 towards several projects including installing a rainwater system, solar panels, and a new driveway.

Match secretary Mike Bell said: “On behalf of Studley Entaco Bowls Club, I want to say a huge thank you to McCarthy Stone for their generous support.

“Without these kinds of donations, we would struggle to keep our facilities to a high standard – in turn, reducing the quality we offer.

“This could have a knock-on effect on the club’s future.

“Together with the support of others, we want to continue to provide an inclusive and friendly meeting place for local people to pursue their love of bowls.”
