Uddingston Tennis and Bowling Club has received a donation from Scotmid Co-operative to encourage more people in the local area to try out the sports.

The community grant of £200 will be used for fun days for the local community, raffle prizes and tournaments.

Past president John McLaren, who made the community grant application to Scotmid, said: “We’d like to thank Scotmid for their kind donation.

“Sponsorship can be difficult to get and it really plays a vital role in helping us to promote tennis and bowls.

“We’re one of the best clubs in the local area and we’d like to encourage people of all ages to come along and have a go.”

Scotmid Uddingston store manager Campbell Lochrie added: “Scotmid’s community grant scheme is one of the ways that we can give back to local groups that have given us so much support over the years.

“It’s a true pleasure to be able to support the club and we hope that it helps to get more kids and adults giving tennis and bowls a go.”
