Supporting Charities in our Community

It has been a tradition here at the Centre to hold three fund raising events each year in support of a charity chosen by the elected Captains of the Indoor Club.

The proceeds from the Presidents Charity Shield Day (held to kick-off the start of the winter season), the Lady Captain’s Day and the Men’s Captain Day (the latter two inviting play in fancy dress for a nominated theme) raise about £2,000 in total each year.

Over the years some £60,000 has been donated to various charities. Some of those to benefit include, St James & St Peters Hospice, Chestnut Tree House, R.N.L.I., British Heart Foundation, Stroke Association, Uckfield Lions, Wheelchair Bowlers Association, K.S.S. Air Ambulance and Cancer for Children.

The generosity of our members through these events enables the Centre to fulfil its commitment as a community club.
