A BOWLS club has been commended for making a huge donation to a local infant school that has gone towards new technology for their nursery.

Last week, members of Iver Heath Bowls Club were invited to visit the Iver Heath Infant School to unveil a new interactive whiteboard and the children presented them with a thank you card to show their appreciation.

The bowls club raised a staggering £2,500 in a charity bowls match against Dennyside Bowls Club back in September this year. Betty Hemsley, a member of the Iver Heath Club, nominated Iver Heath Infants School as the chosen charity to receive the money.

The donation was used to provide a new interactive whiteboard for the nursery at the school in what they hope will be a massive boost to the children’s learning potential.

President of the bowls club, Keith Hawes, Mrs Hemsley and club member Brian Carter unveiled the whiteboards in a small ceremony last Friday.

The cheque was presented to the headmaster of Iver Infant School, Judy Baker, in September by Keith Hawes, club member Alan Whitrod and a member of the visiting Dennyside Bowling Association.

Mrs Baker said: “I would like to than the Iver Heath Bowls Club very much and particularly Mrs Hemsley who was kind enough to put our name forward as a recipient.

“The children are all delighted with their new computing resource and use the equipment to enhance their learning in many areas including maths, English and art.”
