To ensure the continuation of Kings Park Bowls Club into 2021 and beyond through maintenance and improvements to our facilities.

by Laura Kitcher in Bournemouth, England, United Kingdom

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, leisure activities and community groups. Here at Kings Park Bowls Club, sadly we too have been affected. By way of Crowd Funding we are aiming to...

  • Secure club survival into 2021 and beyond
  • Allow play to continue in a Covid safe space 
  • Complete much needed maintenance and repairs to our bowls green and banks 
  • Purchase a ramp for disabled access to the green
  • Purchase new equipment to encourage new members

Allow us to introduce ourselves....

We are a Bournemouth based bowls club, founded in 1905, with a membership of around 50 people, ranging in age from 13-93. We play in local district leagues and compete at both county and national levels. We are primarily based in the Boscombe area of Bournemouth and serve many of the most deprived areas within Bournemouth. We work within the local community, hosting visiting community groups, sporting groups and schools. 

During the winter months we host a fellowship club, which caters for mainly elderly members, and gives many of them the opportunity to socialise with others during the long winter months, which is an especially important lifeline to our members that live alone.

What has happened in 2020?

2020 has been one of the hardest years for Kings Park in living memory. Our local leagues, together with county and national competitions have all been cancelled due to Covid-19. A lot of our revenue also relies upon touring teams visiting the club and social events that we are able to put on throughout the year. Because of this our income has drastically reduced and we have had to become creative in the way that we ensure the future of our club. We were lucky enough to reopen for bowls in June 2020, but this was heavily impacted by social distancing and Government advice, which meant we were unable to return to bowls fully.

Why do we need your help? 

Every year we have a number of overheads as a club to cover, and these have not gone away due to the pandemic. Not only do we need to the support to ensure that the club makes it into 2021, but we want to ensure it's future and more. A number of local residents rely upon our club to provide an avenue to keep fit, socialise with others or to have a safe space to socialise within, and we do not want to lose that.

Where would the money go?

We have a number of things that we plan to use the funding for. These include, but are not exclusive to;

  • To bring the game of bowls to all generations  
  • Helping to keep our community fit and active 
  • Continuing to provide a safe social space for local residents 
  • Enabling us to run inspiring events for our local community 

We know 2020 has been a difficult year for many, but all donations are gratefully received, so please help us if you can
