KidSport Northumberland would like to thank the Port Hope Lawn Bowling Club for their very generous donation of $5890.00 (WOW!!!). The Port Hope Lawn Bowling Club has been true advocate for sport and recreation locally in Port Hope since 1900. Due to decreasing club membership the remaining members decided it was time to close down and look for ways to continue their legacy of sport and community through legacy donations. KidSport Northumberland was very fortunate to be 1 of 6 local charities that received some of this funding.

Barbra Gard (treasurer of the Port Hope Lawn Bowling Club) told us it was important for the group to donate to local charities that would help improve our community and continue the legacy of Port Hope Lawn Bowling Club’s love for sport, wellness and healthy active living.
