CABARET artists performed at a bowling club to help raise money for The Rowans Hospice.

The evening at the North End Bowling Club, Beresford Road, Portsmouth, saw former Stars In Their Eyes contestant Dave Culver and Norman Wisdom impersonator Glenn Ford take to the stage.

The evening raised £1,092 for the hospice in Purbrook.

Money was raised through ticket sales and donations given on the night.

Sharon Bradbury, of the bowling club, thanked the stars, businesses and club members for their contributions towards the evening’s success.

She said ‘We didn’t spend a penny on prizes.

‘A variety of food, wine and pampering hampers were entirely made from donations.’

A cheque was presented to hospice staff.

Money will go towards the upkeep of the service.

This includes the day centre and bereavement services.
