Just over a year since the club came into being they donated a cheque for £500 to the Hindley-based hospice.

The funds were raised by the club performing at a variety of gigs over the last year.

Club Chairman, Eric Lilley, said: "We're a small very laid-back club with members from across Wigan and Leigh and even further afield. We're delighted to be giving a donation to Wigan and Leigh Hospice because it's a very worthwhile charity and one which has helped a lot of local people."

The club of 50 members meets every Tuesday at Wigan Bowling Subscription Club to play and sing together.
