As another excellent year comes to an end and before we go into the festive season, I would like to thank the DBE Bowls family for all their support over the past 12 months to raise our profile once again on the Home and World stage, Congratulations, you all have raised the bar to a high standard “Proving Bowls is for Everyone”.

I must also thank our band of volunteers and senior management team, who have worked tirelessly to deliver another year of Events, Fixtures & Competitions whilst working under serious financial constraints, but between us we have managed to increase our membership to 470 of which 223 have a Physical Disability, 87 are Visually Impaired, 56 have a Learning Difficulty with the rest being made up of Volunteers and Supporters. We have also increased the Disabled friendly members clubs to 206, which is fabulous news for an Charity organisation who receives no Government
or Sport’s National Governing bodies funding or support!!!

The Trustees have accepted the invitation to send a SELF FUNDED “Team England Representative Squad” to the International Bowls for the Disabled (IBD) World Championships in South Africa between 18-31 May 2024 which will once again showcase our Ability not Disability from teams around the World. On behalf of the DBE Charity Trustees, I would like to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and fingers crossed a very Happy New Year.

Kind Regards
We are Stronger Together
