The charity bowling event was a first for the charity, who specialise in support services for deaf adults in residential care in Preston.

A number of people turned out to play in the 10-pin bowl competition on Tuesday night and organisers said the players all enjoyed a ‘brilliant evening.’

Christina Eley, from Deafway, who helped put on the event, said: “It was a fantastic night, made even better by our staff who volunteered to put together some competitive teams and by all the children who took part making a great atmosphere!”

There were eight teams in the competition with prizes awarded for best individual adult and child player as well as the best team.
