Snooker players showed they had other talents by winning the Fundraising Shield at this year’s Leamington Rotary Club Raft Race.

Members of Lillington Bowls Club’s snooker section were presented with the shield recently after rotarians had counted the team’s final donation - which was £1,921.

The money will be split between two charities - The Myton Hospices and Molly Olly’s Wishes.

This is the team’s second claim to the shield after they won in 2013 for raising £1,314 for the same two good causes.

The team’s raft HMS Tickitape, made out of 728 polythene drinks bottles, also won the ‘most innovative’ prize.
