I am fed up of the blatant disregard for non-meat eaters shown by bowls clubs with regards to their meat tray raffles, the organisers of the raffles do nothing to cater for vegetarian and vegan bowlers.
Every week I have to feel as if I am a second class citizen unable to participate in the raffle, I’ve raised this with the organisers on many occasions but it just falls on deaf ears every time or even worse is simply laughed off, so far nothing has changed at my club.
Not everyone supports the systematic slaughter of animals, so fellow members can have a chance of winning a weekly “tray of death and murder” which is paraded around in front of people like myself.
I think it is only fair for more inclusive options to be offered instead which would mean everybody could be allowed to participate.
I would like organisers to consider this next time they are getting ready for a raffle, it is after all 2018 and we as a society should be more progressive with our raffle prizes.
