Dorset’s Douch Family Funeral Directors are hosting a fundraising afternoon at Pelhams Bowls Club in memory of their late chairman Peter Douch.

Peter was a huge sports fan and the business has sponsored many teams and leagues over the years.

The ‘Roll for a Cause’ afternoon in Bournemouth on Wednesday July 3 will include fun activities for experienced bowlers as well as complete beginners.

There will be left and right-handed bowling, skittles, target practice and mini-games.

Instructors will be on hand to give tuition and tickets include afternoon tea.

Nick Douch, managing director, said: “My father was involved in Rotary Clubs in Wimborne and in St Lucia and money raised will be going to those organisations.

“The fun starts at 2pm and everyone is welcome and there will be lots going on.

“The bar will be open and it will be a great chance to learn how to roll a wood and learn the game.

“We will also be holding a raffle and there are some super prizes.”

Tickets are £10 and can be purchased from the Douch branch AE Jolliffe & Son in Ferndown or by phoning them on 01202 872 050 or emailing
