Moss­man Bowls event aids Paws and Claws

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

Paws and Claws would like to give a re­ally big thank you to the guys at the Moss­man Bowls Club.

In Novem­ber last year the Moss­man Bowls Club hosted a char­ity bowls com­pe­ti­tion to help raise funds for a par­tic­u­lar char­ity in the re­gion.

The funds were raised by game fees and meat tray raf­fles through­out the com­pe­ti­tion. The win­ners of the com­pe­ti­tion were able to nom­i­nate a char­ity to which the pro­ceeds would be do­nated.

There was stiff com­pe­ti­tion from the ever brave Fire Fight­ers and also the very gen­er­ous teach­ers from Saint Au­gus­tine’s School, who al­ways were more than will­ing to throw a few ex­tra dol­lars into the kitty.

Even­tu­ally it came down to a team rep­re­sented by Pe­ter San­tarossa and a team com­pris­ing of Bally Hoo­ley staff, Daryl Hoskin and Adrian Boundy with Char­lie Toohey in charge.

Char­lie Toohey’s team dubbed “Char­lie’s An­gels” ended up tak­ing out the hon­ours and with $446.60 raised from the tour­na­ment they de­cided to do­nate the win­nings to the much ap­pre­ci­ated Paws and Claws.

Event or­gan­iser Greg Pot­ter was very pleased with the attendance of the com­pe­ti­tion and over­whelmed with the kind do­na­tions raised by all the par­tic­i­pants.

Greg also recog­nises the com­pe­ti­tion wouldn’t have taken place with­out the gen­er­ous ef­forts of the many vol­un­teers and he would like to thank them all and looks for­ward to do­ing it all again to­wards the end of the year.
