ENGLISH BOWLING ASSOCIATIONS CHARITY TRUST (Registered under the Charities Act 1960) Sponsored by: BOWLS ENGLAND & EIBA LIMITED Hon. President: D J Bryant CBE CHAIRMANS REPORT ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING At the last Annual General meeting it was agreed that the profile of the Trust needed to be raised. We therefore decided to continue take the Charity games around the country. We had a banner made which can be taken to various venues, and a full page article was written in Bowls International giving the history of the Trust We are also seeking bowlers who for a donation of £50 would become Patrons, and wear the trust badge. In January a game was organised indoors at Barwell, Leicestershire against the EIBA Chairman’s team, which raised over £400. The outdoor game is arranged for September 2016 at Topsham in Devon with a Charity Trust team playing the Bowls England President’s team. In 2016/2017 arrangements are in hand for games indoors in Surrey and outdoors in Warwickshire. Find raising continues and we continue to receive donations amongst which was a welcome donation from an Indoor President who used one of her games to promote the Charity Trust. We carry out bucket collections at the Nationals. Applications for assistance are being received, but the Trust would welcome more, as well as hardship, we would consider giving help for gadgets to allow bowlers to continue to play At the Annual General Meeting, Anthony Little FCA, was appointed the Administrator of the Trust. He is from Cumbria and is involved both with the Outdoors and the Indoors. Jessie Clark Chairman June 2016 230
