The Juniors target of raising £5,000 before the end of January has been reached with 5 days to spare. That sum will now be doubled by the Kirklees One Community 'Match It' initiative. There is no reason to stop the push to increase that total for although the Match It scheme total has been reached there is still much that needs funding to kick-start Junior League bowling in the area. Already 91 supporters have added to the target in a show of support from the Huddersfield bowling community. Click on the 'Give Now' link alongside to make an instant donation to this very worthwhile cause.
'Restart in 2021' is a campaign to be launched by the Junior League to attract young bowlers to the sport after a torrid year. All the money raised through the Match It project will be used to re-energise the push to get youngsters to play crown green bowls and introduce the many benefits to a wider audience.
League Secretary, Geoff Martin, has ambitious plans to use the money raised to galvanise local junior bowling and you can read what those plans are and how you can help by following this link. The League is very grateful for every individual, club and league that continues to support this venture which will set the league up with the best possible chance of extending its numbers and helping to secure the future of bowling in Huddersfield.
