On Monday 24th November Heather Green and Willy Goldschmidt attended the AGM of the Warwickshire Women’s Bowls Association and were presented with a cheque for £1,700.

 Maureen Edwards, President of the Association said that “I selected the Friends of St Cross as the President’s charity as I live in Rugby and wanted to support a charity that does so much for the community. Members of the association raised the money for the Friends in a wide variety of ways including holding raffles at matches throughout the year, selling glitter pens and one member of the committee did a sponsored swim. The members were delighted to hear about the progress of the Appeal and that the Hospital of St Cross carries out the majority of elective hip and knee surgery for patients in Coventry and Rugby and that the Friends have contributed to increasing the amount of equipment available for this and many other services.”
