Charity Is The Real Winner

South Ramsey Bowling Club hosted the Kennish Cup mixed doubles competition on Sunday afternoon with 27 pairs taking part, with the Kennish family running the competition in favour of local charity Hospice Isle of Man. In what must surely be a record for an open competition on the Isle of Man £1,200 was raised for this worthy cause.

The eventual winners were last years winners Gill Dixon and Dido Kelly defeating club mates Jenny Moore and James Teare 21-6 in the final, with the score not reflecting the standard of play.

Gill and Dido got through their semi-final with a comfortable victory over the Southern duo of Tracy Moore and Wayne Roberts. In the other semi-final Jenny and James ended the challenge of club mates Elaine Moore and Glynn Hargraves.

Losing out at the quarter-final stage were Lyn Bolton and Trevor Quayle (South Ramsey/Port St Mary) Bethany Kennish and Steven Waters (South Ramsey), Lorraine and James Moore (South Ramsey), Diana White and David Thomson (North Ramsey).

At the conclusion of play the presentation was made by Elaine Moore on behalf of the Kennish family and Alan Moore, who thanked everyone for their generous donations, the Ladies for the excellent refreshments, and everyone who helped throughout the day.

Anyone who would still like to donate please contact Chas Grills or Alan Moore.
