PRESIDENT'S DAY: The sun shone on Sawtry and District bowls club on Sunday for Hunts Bowling Federation president Mick Rayson's invitational day.
The annual president's day was held at Rayson's home club and saw representatives from many of the district's bowling clubs attend.
Two former presidents of the English Bowling Federation, Don Racey and Peter Mason, and Richard Montgomery, president of the Northants Bowling Federation, were among the guests.
A total of £270 was raised for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Rayson's nominated charity, while all the guests enjoyed a sit-down meal.
The event is the highlight of the presidential year, which has seen Rayson implement a red and yellow card system, helping to add to the charity fund.
In his speech, the president paid tribute to members past and present who had helped the development of his home club - Sawtry and District.
