Bowling club in line for award

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD sports club has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award.

Thorncliffe Bowling Club, Chapeltown, will now compete against four organisations from across the country for the chance to be named winner of the small grants category at the 2012 Biffa Awards, and receive a £2,000 prize.

The club received just under £5,000 in funding from Biffa to provide a second shelter on its top green with disabled access and benches to allow people to sit and watch bowls matches.

The Biffa Awards ceremony 2012 will be held in September and recognises the best community projects funded by the waste company.
