Char­ity day a suc­cess

The Cobram Courier - - SPORT -

The Co­bram District Hos­pi­tal Ladies Aux­il­iary en­joyed a char­ity bowls day on Sun­day, Septem­ber 30, with the will­ing help of the Ba­rooga Spor­ties Bowl­ing Club, who pro­vided its greens for the day.

The con­di­tions were glo­ri­ous, with 36 play­ers turn­ing out to en­joy a fun day on the greens.

Pres­i­dent Mary Pow­ell said it was the third time the Hos­pi­tal Ladies Aux­il­iary had been able to host the event, and the first time it had been done on a Sun­day which she added worked well for ev­ery­one.

‘‘The bowl­ing club al­ways has a char­ity day and this year they de­cided we would be the ben­e­fi­cia­ries which we were ex­tremely grate­ful and thrilled about,’’ Mrs Pow­ell said.

‘‘It was a very re­laxed day and we had lots of raf­fles avail­able, ev­ery­body seemed to en­joy them­selves,’’ she said.

Mrs Pow­ell said the group is now work­ing through the process of where the funds raised will go.

‘‘We have a meet­ing on Thurs­day with a mem­ber from Irvin House who will be talk­ing about a mu­sic sys­tem that was re­cently seen on Four Cor­ners which is be­lieved to help el­derly res­i­dents.’’

‘‘It is cer­tainly on the wish list, we just need to find out a lit­tle bit more about it be­fore we com­mit to it,’’ she said.

All smiles: Aux­il­iary trea­surer Pat Tal­lent and pres­i­dent Mary Pow­ell.

Ideal weather: Bowlers were greeted with a glo­ri­ous day on Septem­ber 30.
