Bridlington Alexandra Bowling Club is delighted to have been awarded a £500 grant through the Skipton Building Society Grassroots Giving Scheme.

The scheme began in 2013 to mark the anniversary of the Skipton’s 160th birthday and the idea behind it is to help voluntary groups, community organisations and sports clubs throughout the UK, who only have access to limited funding from elsewhere.

In the end 30,000 public votes were cast, deciding the final 162 lucky winners, of which the Alexandra club was one.

Club chairman Lynne Mitchell said: “Grateful thanks go to the Skipton Building Society for this excellent scheme and to all who voted for us.

“The grant will be used to buy a new set of doors for our clubhouse.”
