Prince Arthur Road Indoor Bowling Club
Kent Sport Small Grant
About the project…
What was the small grant used for?
The grant was used to buy small equipment to enable disabled persons to partake in bowling. The equipment consisted of bowls launchers and new aged bowls.
What impact did the funding have on the participants?
Bowls launchers have enabled many previous bowlers to return to bowling as it has eliminated the reason they had to give up before such as bending and back and knee problems. The new aged bowls and launchers have allowed a greater range of disabled people and wheelchair users to partake in the sport.
How do you intend to continue the success of the project?
The use of this new equipment will continue for the foreseeable future. Some members have now purchased their own launchers enabling other members to use the equipment.
