Thirty people try out bowls as part of MS Awareness Day event in Lichfield

Around 30 people enjoyed free bowls as part of an MS Awareness Day event in Beacon Park.

Organised by Lichfield District Council’s parks and sports developments teams and the MS Society the event on May 31 saw people of all ages given the chance to try bowling and learn more about how it can help people suffering with multiple sclerosis.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet member for leisure, said: “I am pleased the day was such a success.

“The sun shone and a good mix of people of all ages took part in the activities and found out about MS. It also introduced a number of people with multiple sclerosis to a light exercise which can help relieve the symptoms of MS, including stiff arms and legs.”
