THE Sue Ryder Foundation is among the charities to have benefited when the general manager of Alley Catz in Spalding decided to offer them lanes to use.

Matt Flisher approached eight charities asking if they would like to use the lanes to raise funds or simply to provide an activity for their users. The Sue Ryder shop staff in The Crescent was one of those to respond to the invitation.

The shop sold 25 tickets offering people the chance to pay £5 to play on the lanes and Matt says between 25 and 40 people were there on the night having fun, which resulted in a cheque for the charity.

Matt said: “We wanted to give something back to the community. The people enjoy the lanes and the charity itself raises money. I want to offer it to sporting clubs next year.”
