RCCC Greenacres Ladies Charity Bonspiel Winners

GreenacreBonspeilYourCurlerPicture.jpgThe RCCC Greenacres Ladies’ Branch marked the end of the 175 anniversary year season with a charity bonspiel on Thursday 3 April 2014 . The call went out and an amazing 24 teams responded. Players from Aberdeen, Stranraer, Dumfries and Hamilton joined the more local teams in a fun fund-raising event.

Two sections played 12 ends over three 4-end games held strictly to time by very efficient whistle-blowing timekeepers from the local committee. A quiz and tombola kept everyone busy when off the ice, whilst the stalls offering beautiful jewellery, scarves and bags, plants, skin care products, advice and makeovers ensured that our guests would part with their money. Everyone enjoyed a soup ‘n sannies’ lunch and ended the day with a cream tea. Over £900 was raised by both players and sponsors, generously supported by Greenacres Curling. The charities drawn from the nominations by the teams were Cancer Research Scotland, Ovarian Cancer Research and St Vincent’s Hospice.

Winners of Section A were Buff Scott, Charlotte Tierney, Alison Lees and Ann Hutchison. Section B winners were Christine Cannon, Margaret Richardson, Alison Taylor and Margaret Robertson. The 6ft tall teddy, star of the tombola, is now set to go to his new home in Robin House, the CHAS children’s hospice in Balloch, West Dunbartonshire.

Well done everyone and thank you!
