The Worthing Pavilion Bowling Club welcomed Bowler from across the country for the National Masonic Annual Charity Event, which raised £ 6,000 for charity.

The Freemasons' Bowling Federation charity competition attracted 20 teams from 14 provinces, including Derbyshire, Devon and Cambridge.

Christopher Moore, the Grand Master of Sussex, welcomed them all to the club on Pavilion Road.

Ian Lay, club director, said: "The bowlers were impressed with the quality of the facilities at the Worthing Pavilion.

"The speed of the greens has taken a number of bowlers by surprise, and then everyone had to deal with the gusty wind."

Divided into two groups, each team played three others in 50-minute games.

The two group winners and the two runners-up then played against each other for the first four places.

Wiltshire defeated Derbyshire for the title and Buckinghamshire defeated Warwickshire for third place.

Before the winners received their plates, Mr. Moore presented checks to over £ 2,000 to three selected charities.
