Fund raising success at the Oasis as £300 raised for NARS
The Oasis Indoor Bowls Club recently raised over £300 for the charity, Norfolk Accident and Rescue Service (NARS).
With over 100 members, the Club has bounced back post-COVID. The Club now has a full programme of morning, afternoon and evening leagues to suit beginners and advanced players alike. There are also regular coaching sessions on Wednesday afternoons for those wishing to take up or improve their game. Throughout the Winter season, singles, pairs, triples and fours competitions are available, with the monthly Sunday friendly events always well attended, with refreshments on hand throughout. Indoor Bowls is an excellent stepping stone for those wishing to progress into the outdoor leagues which take place throughout the Summer.
NARS has been providing an emergency medical response service on Norfolk’s 6,000 miles of rural roads for the past 48 years. They provide specialised trauma assistance at the site of an accident or other medical emergency. Most NARS members are volunteers who give their time freely. NARS’ most frequent call outs are to cardiac arrests and one of their aims is to use their headquarters in Dereham to educate the public, improving recognition and teaching Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). NARS is funded solely by donations. For more information about NARS or to donate to this invaluable service, please visit their website at www.nars.org.uk .
Oasis manager, Dave Cleland, who is also a member of this charity, was delighted on both accounts. “Whilst we continually try to raise funds for this important charity on a regular basis, our annual President’s Day was a great fund raising success. My thanks got to all those involved on the day”.
Anyone wishing to take up Indoor Bowls is welcome to come down to the Oasis centre for a taster session. For more information, please contact Frazer Clement on 01485 534449 or Helen Young on 01553 760524.
