Bowling for money

By Emily Pearce

RYDE Superbowl will raise funds for the children’s ward at St Mary’s Hospital, to say thank you for looking after the manager’s daughter.

When Kayleigh Harris’s daughter was admitted to the ward with breathing problems, Kayleigh was so impressed with the care she received during her week-long stay she wanted to thank the doctors and nurses.

A charity fundraiser will be held at the bowling alley on Christmas Eve, with glow bowling throughout the day, prize giveaways and a raffle.

Bowlers will be able to vote for one of the managers to be gunged, in return for a donation, and Father Christmas is expected to make an appearance too.

Of course, if you've got a few spare bob you can pay for a private room - but you still get the same consultant, surgeon etc.

Too right Mike - Some people expect a hospital to provide feather bed treatment. Like I said before, you don't get mollycoddled at St Mary's Hospital - you get good medical services - and that goes for the paramedics too

Yet another glowing report about St Mary's Hospital. All I can say is that those who find fault with the place have a problem in themselves.

Well done St Marys from another very satisfied patient.

Christmas Eve and an appearance of Father Christmas? Someone knows someone eh?

Glad all is OK and in time for Christmas too!!!!!!!!
