A popular monthly bacon butty morning held at Stretham Bowls Club has raised more than £1000 for charity.

The cheque was presented to the Alzheimer's Society by club president Dave Cousins.

The money raised was the third donation for the society, after more than £2550 has been handed over so far.

Ian Stewart, bowls club treasurer, said: "The majority of these funds were raised via our 'bacon butty' mornings held at the club in Short Road, Stretham, on the second Monday of each month.

"Everyone is welcome to attend."
