We have recently had some really welcoming news at the indoor bowls club amidst all the gloom!
Joe Peplow now has enough money to fund a new motorised wheelchair. Joe managed to raise £1,000 from his own fundraising efforts – and thanks must also go to Chris Barr-Hamilton, Martin Griffiths and Mike Pilling for all their input and thoughtful hard work in helping to achieve that figure. Joe also received a grant from £1,500 from the English Bowling Association Charity Trust which finally gave him enough to purchase a chair.
The motorised chair will make a huge difference when Joe is able to begin playing again as previously he had to rely on others players to help push him when changing ends during a game. This chair will aid his independent mobility and speed of movement during the game.
