FUNDS for the new school swimming pool at Soham received another boost on Friday when Ely bowling alley Strikes donated �461 to the cause.

Last month, Strikes was the venue for a charity bowling event and the cash represented their takings for the evening - bringing the grand total for the night’s fund-raising up to �1,051.

The event at Strikes, included spot prizes, a raffle and Andrew Carr Accountants being declared champions in the corporate bowling competition against Cambridge Building Society.

Strikes presented the money to Sarah Newman, vice chairman of St Andrew’s Swimming Pool Association at a school assembly, taking the new fund raising total to almost �43,000.

INFO: A 24-hour fund-raising Fitathon is being run in association with Crown Garage Soham on April 28. The event will begin at 3pm with a Zumba class and continue with hourly fitness classes for adults and children until 3pm on 29/4/12. You can be sponsored to come along and do as many or as few classes as you want to. For more details email: pool@st-andrews-pri.sch.co.uk
