A fundraising ten-pin bowling night at Shaw Ridge Leisure Park raised £1,300 for Pathfinders, a charity for children with disabilities, and Swindon‘s Goldenhar Family Support Group, writes Joy Aldred.
Two year old Morgan Sharpe, from Middleleaze, was diagnosed with Goldenhar Syndrome, a term used for a range of bone abnormalities affecting the face and sometimes the vertebrae, as a baby. Morgan has a missing ear, a missing eye, a tracheotomy, and fluid in the ventricles of his brain.
His grandfather Alan Holmes now organises charity events for the Goldenhar Family Support Group and was delighted with the bowling evening, which had over 100 people taking part.
Twenty lanes were used and all proceeds, from Tenpin Shaw Ridge, were donated to the two charities. The winning team was Manor Hill Ceramics.
