CAPTAINS CHARITY 2020
Each year the Club Captain chooses a charity to support and the club raises funds through large scale events such as a fun bowling match or a quiz to individual donations for example putting small change in a bottle on the bar or paying a small fine for a wrong bias or other minor misdemeanour on the bowls green.
Debbie Trollop the 2020 Captain has chosen as her charity:-
Pumping Marvellous are a UK heart failure charity group who support patients and their families and help them live with heart failure. The charity have lots of information, a positive attitude, friendly support and provide consistent encouragement to all affected by heart failure.
Why this charity?
Debbie says "I have a dear friend who I qualified as a midwife with and at the moment [Dec 2019] she has been in Harefield hospital since February  waiting for her heart transplant. She has congenital heart failure and is now in end stage heart failure and her only hope is a new heart. She is an ambassador for this charity and speaks in parliament and anywhere that will listen to her about Pumping Marvelous and the work and support they offer and also campaigning for donation to be an ‘opt out’ not an opt in.
From 2020 organ donation will be indeed be an opt out but your next of kin still have the final say. So please make sure your family know your wishes. If you want to donate any of your bits andpieces register on line and have that discussion with your families."
