Fundraising at Gloucester Retirement Village

11th September, 2015

Residents at St Oswald’s Retirement Village in Gloucester have recently purchased a new bowls mat and started a curling group.

A group of residents applied for community grant funding on two occasions this year, to a combined value of £2,000, allowing them to purchase the new mat for the bowling group.

The funds also made it possible to have a start-up fund to buy all the required equipment to start a curling group.

Village Activity Facilitator Chloe Robbins said: “We just wanted to make a public thank you to our local councillor Jeremy Hilton for helping us making this possible.”
