At this difficult time the Fund wishes to remind all Berkshire bowlers that we are here for the sole purpose of granting aid or relief to both male and female bowlers and their dependants who from age, infirmity or any cause which the committee consider worthy of financial aid or assistance.

Applications for assistance will normally be submitted by the Committee of the Club of which the applicant is or was a member, but may also be recommended by the appointed liaison person of the club in question.

The names of the persons seeking assistance to be disclosed only to the Benevolent Committee and regarded as strictly confidential. Please check below where further information and contact details are available.

We would hope that all bowlers keep themselves safe by avoiding physical contact with those outside their household to lessen the chance of passing on the virus, but will keep in touch with each other by phone.checking that we are all OK and to keep each others spirits up.
