Andy Jones (Chairman) Hawkesbury BC

In December 2016, Andy received the devastating news that he had a cancerous and aggressive brain tumour, a Glioblastoma Multiforme, the most common high grade primary brain tumour in adults.

Having undergone brain surgery, six weeks of radiotherapy and six months of the "gold standard" chemotherapy, his tumour, unfortunately showed subtle signs of progression. Since then, Andy has switched to a different chemotherapy but the tumour has continued to grow.

Whilst the NHS have been nothing but amazing, the treatment offered just isn't working so now he needs to consider therapies and drugs that are available privately.

Andy is having his third surgery on 29th December to remove as much of the tumour as his neuro surgeon can physically see and then he will need to hit it using treatment and therapy which is not available on the NHS but has been recommended via a second opinion.

The highest costing treatment is "Optune Therapy" which will involve Andy wearing 4 adhesive patches on his head for upto 22 hours a day to deliver therapy direct to the tumour area. This is a costly treatment and will also require monthly visits to London for maintenance, MRI's etc. Whilst it is not curative, we hope it will keep him here a lot longer.

If you would like to donate to help Andy, follow the link below.


In the event that Andy can't use the money raised, it  will be donated to The Brain Tumour Charity for their essential research.

£2,078.45 raised at Bowlathon

I would just like to give a big thank you to all who supported the bowlathon fund raising match on Sunday 15th April at Hawkesbury. I cannot single anyone out for praise because everyone was a star. I was over whelmed by your support. Crown green bowlers are like one big family with so many lovely people, who all have the warmest heart. I applaud each and everyone who turned up to play (especially the 10 jacks), sold refreshments and helped to do all the other tasks.

My love and thanks to you all
