English Bowling Association Charitable Trust (EBACT)

The Trust, which is supported by Bowls England and the English Indoor Bowling Association, is a Registered Charity established in 1980 to help bowlers past and present, and their dependants, who may be in need of financial assistance.

It will also assist bowlers who become disabled in any way to continue to enjoy playing, by making grants available for “bowling aids” including wheelchairs.

The Trust is dependent upon contributions from individuals, clubs and county associations to support its work.
