event will be used to help raise awareness of bowel cancer and
support patients and their families coping with the disease.
Event organiser, Ted Morrell, said:- "Members of both Victoria
Park Bowling Club, Southport and the 12 local U3A Groups welcome
this opportunity to help Beating Bowel Cancer achieve its aims. We

disease which affects so many people in the UK and all money raised
at this event will be used to help raise awareness of bowel cancer
and support patients and their families coping with the disease."
Bowel cancer is the UK's second biggest cancer killer because many
patients are diagnosed too late. Each year more than 41,000 people
