The fundraising didn’t end there. A second fundraising event took place on July 22nd – a club cabaret evening which managed to raise a further £425 bringing the grand total to the magnificent sum of £1,315.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to all the members of John G Fleming Bowling Club in Houston, to all the Ladies from across Renfrewshire who participated in the Bowls competition, to all the local people and local businesses who donated raffle prizes, home baking and to everyone who dug deep into their pockets and bought raffle tickets and home baking. Now we look forward to 2018 and doing our best to beat this year’s figure!”
