COMPETITION winners at Stannington Carpet Bowling Club received their trophies or shields at its annual awards presentation evening in Stannington Village Hall.

Each year on the awards night the club presents a cheque to a chosen charity. This year’s choice was The Alzheimers Society and on hand to receive the £280, raised through raffles and a charity box, was its Information Worker for Northumberland, Sophie Ford.

After accepting the cheque, she gave a short presentation on the work of the society and hosted a question and answer session. She also participated in a number of games of bowls, proving to be a very capable competitor considering she has not played the game before.

The club competition award winners are as follows. Ladies’ singles: winner B Green; runner-up A Liddle. Men’s Singles: winner J Nichol; runner-up B Henderson.

Doubles: winners B Green and L Smith; runners-up D Scott and W Scott. Champion of Champions: B Green.
