In the past, the NSMBA has played a yearly competition called The Earl Spencer.

A considerable amount of money has been raised for AGE UK plus equipment and support.

to teach short mat bowls to residents in care homes.

The NSMBA has also had ‘FUN DAYS’ which originally raised money for the Air Ambulance.

Only members from Northampton played in this as it was a pilot for the future, it was such a success

that we then invited clubs as far away as Hertfordshire. We then included Help for Hero’s and Royal

British Legion. These matches were called  ‘Randoms’ as players names were randomly selected.

In the future, it is hoped these ‘fun days’ can be played again to raise money for some very worthwhile causes
