On Saturday 12th February Norwich YBC celebrated their recent success at the South of England Open, Norfolk County Trials and receiving ClubMark accreditation. The club were joined by local Liberal Democrat MP Simon Wright, National ClubMark Steering Committee member Suzanne Benton and the management from our home centre NumberTEN Norwich. As part of our celebration the club was presented with a new spare bowling ball which could be presented to a member of our flourishing Academy set up. The clubs executive committee decided to award the ball to newcomer Lawrence Scott, a local 17 year old who recently suffered a stroke which has left him unable to use his right hand. Lawrence has been persevering to live his life after this incident and has shown some amazing promise bowling left handed with no help from his other hand. The club are extremely proud of all of Lawrence’s efforts and hope that with the aid of ClubMark we can reach out to more handicapped youngsters across Norwich and Norfolk, giving them a chance to participate in one of few sports where abilities of all kind are welcomed and encouraged. The club has already looked into several different possibilities on how we can do this successfully and numerous grants and funds are going to be applied for. These funds will cover a wide range of different areas including training tools, tournament accessibility but most importantly following on from Simon Wright’s words at the presentation allowing as many people as possible to gain success from an accessible, hard-working, safe and entertaining environment as possible. Norwich YBC would like to thank Simon Wright MP, Suzanne Benton, NumberTEN Management and Ian Grange from Active Norfolk for all of their work with us in achieving ClubMark and being a part of the great ceremony.

Norwich YBC Chairman.
