Larne Bowling and Lawn Tennis club recently held a charity day at the club to raise funds for local charity, TinyLife.

The charity, which is close to the hearts of club members, is Northern Ireland’s premature baby charity.

As well as a terrific donation of £725 raised at the event, a donation of £200 was made from the McRandal family, whose twins were born prematurely.

TinyLife provides emotional and practical support to the parents of premature babies across NI, through their raft of Family Support Services. Every day in Northern Ireland six babies are born too soon, some arriving as early as 26 weeks and weighing as little as 1lb.

The cheque was presented to TinyLife Community Fundraiser, Gillian Breen, by Eddie Wilson, Derick Jenkins (Club Chairman), Brian McRandal (Tennis Captain), Claire McRandal, Johnnie Hamill (Men’s Bowling President) and Marie Wilson (Lady Bowling President).
