Do A Run Every Day (D.A.R.E.D.)

The Edinburgh Bowling League has raised almost £70,000 over the years for a range of worthy causes.  As 2019 President, I have chosen Circle Scotland as our charity partner.  Circle do great work in the Lothian’s and Central Scotland, “Improving the lives of children by strengthening families”.

The D.A.R.E.D challenge is to run a mile every day in the month of June.  Those who know me or have seen the nick of me, will realise this will be easier said than done!

Please donate to support the most disadvantaged children and families to improve their lives, promote their healthy development and reach their potential.  Or better still, sign up too and help raise for a worthy cause.

You can help President Steven and his charity, Circle, by clicking the JustGiving link and donating what you can.

Donation cans are also available in some clubs for collecting spare change and as always there will be loads of opportunity at the Charity Triples day on June 15th at Willowbrae BC

Mental Health Awareness Week

Monday May 13th is the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week for 2019. Individuals who suffer from any form should always have someone to talk with. The EBL committee have put together some useful telephone numbers and websites on cards and distributed to all member clubs.

Making Tax Digital

From 1 April 2019 HMRC are changing the way organisations submit VAT returns. You will no longer be able to submit your VAT returns via your government gateway logins, you will have to prepare and submit your VAT returns via compatible, online, software. If you need any help determining if you have compatible software, or need advice and training on acquiring the compatible software then Alan Trotter (Maitland BC) is providing this service at a discounted fee for EBL Bowling clubs.
