Our much loved Mel Evans MBE was in the prime of his life. Mel took early retirement in June 2015 to fully dedicate himself to developing the sport of Crown Green Bowls. Mel became a grandfather to Isabelle Megan in October 2015. In April 2016, totally out of the blue, Mel and his family had the devastating diagnosis that would change their lives forever. In July 2017 the awful condition that is Motor Neurone Disease (MND) took a beloved man away from his devoted partner Lynn, his darling daughter Jenny and gorgeous baby granddaughter Isabelle Megan. Crown Green Bowls was also robbed of a giant who was working tirelessly to promote the sport and who was the driving force behind the Summit League.
MND is a life limiting condition that can strike anyone at any time. There is no effective treatment and there is no cure. Funds raised will go to research undertaken by leading scientists and neurologists. Please help us make a difference and move closer to a world free of MND.
