Can you Help to Support A Child?

Already several of our members do and get much pleasure seeing the children they sponsor grow into well rounded young people.
(Can all those who sponsor a child please send me a photo so we can all see the kids you help
These children are desperately poor. Most live in houses you would not have as a garden shed. Earth floors and walls, no running water or electricity - yet they are always spotless clean and happy !! Sometimes they do not eat for days and collapse at school .The school set up a feeding programme for the most vulnerable .
You can see some more photos HERE

From as little as 20p a day, you can sponsor a child through primary school education.

"We educate poor children. We do so without regard to race gender or religion. We have very low overheads relying mainly on volunteers. We run a child sponsorship program. We educate hundreds of children and know that with your help we can help more." Educate The Kids

Children at Jolaurabi School in Bamburi Ken

New members may not be aware that since 2008 The Club has sponsored a little girl Fatuma Hassan in Kenya through the 'Educate the kids' Charity.fatuma hassan

This charity is very hands on and every penny donated is spent on the kids. Take a look at their website HERE

The Kenyan Kids came to our Club for their 2nd visit on 9th July 2015 and danced and sang on our green.
Rink 1 stood up very well to the barefeet of 23 youngsters. One even did a breakdance (photos please?) and a somersault. They were fantastic!!


Our main charity is still Hospice South West for Children and all your donations for wrong bias and some raffles and indeed everything that goes into 'the pig' does and will continue to go to this worthy cause.

However, Winscombe Bowling Club also donates monies to our Kenyan Charity annually which is mainly raised at Presidents Opening Day and Captains Closing Day - often it's the proceeds from a spider .


................. it will cost you just £6 per month .......... Your child's smile will be your reward.
If you can - please contact Yvonne at the charity
