A BOWLING competition held in Clackmannanshire raised a great amount for charity last weekend.

People went head-to-head in the Kodi Triples at Dollar Bowling Club, battling it out for the winning trophies.

Held on Saturday, July 22, they also enjoyed some evening entertainment – all in the name of Ronald McDonald House in Glasgow.

Davie Dowell, who is a member of the bowling club, organised the event in a bid to pay something back.

The family received help from the charity when his son Kodi – who took part in the fundraiser – was unwell.

The packed day managed to secure a fantastic amount for the cause, which supports people who have children in hospital.

Davie said: "It was good, we raised £1062.09 for the charity – everything went well.

"The weather wasn't great but it didn't dampen any spirits; there was people from all over.

"It was good, good turnout; there was 48 people playing, there must have been about 70 people there on the day."

The winners of the bowling tournament were Derek MacIntosh, Stuart Gillies and Stewart Hunter.

Local singer John Kerr provided some entertainment during the get-together that followed.

There were some refreshments and more than 200 prizes up for grabs in the raffle, thanks to the generosity of people in Dollar and beyond.

There were plenty of vouchers to be won and there were items from Rangers Football Club, along with Partick Thistle tickets.

Davie gave a special thanks to Don Cowie of Hearts Football Club for donating a signed top, along with sponsors of the event John MacMillan, Kevin Jack and A & H Taxis.

He also paid tribute to all who donated and those who gave raffle prizes.
