MORE than £400 was raised for Age Concern Cambridgeshire at an over-60s carpet bowls match. The match, which took place at Littleport Leisure Centre, was organised by Norman South and Jim Brasher, and 40 teams of four players took part.

Competitors hailed from all over the Eastern region.

The money raised came from entry fees and a raffle and the winners, from Over, received a trophy.

Chairwoman of Age Concern Cambridgeshire, Hazel Williams, said: "Norman and Jim have been raising money for various charities for several years without any concern for self-recognition. It was a real team effort and a great success; 160 people had a thoroughly enjoyable time and the money will be of great benefit to Age Concern Cambridgeshire"
