Bowled over by fundraiser

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

THE Fre­man­tle Bowl­ing Club was awash in a sea of green when the St Patrick’s Com­mu­nity Sup­port Cen­tre cel­e­brated the feast day of their name­sake with a fundraiser.

Go Green on the Green in­vited lo­cals and Fre­man­tle per­son­al­i­ties to join in an af­ter­noon of bowl­ing, Ir­ish mu­sic and Aus­tralian food catered by Bindi Bindi Dream­ing on St Patrick’s Day.

St Patrick’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Steve McDer­mott said al­most $3000 was raised on the day, with the money to go to­wards a new ven­ture.

“St Pat’s is about to open a brand new den­tal clinic to pro­vide ser­vices to peo­ple who can­not oth­er­wise af­ford den­tal care,” he said.

“Den­tal prob­lems can lead to se­ri­ous health con­se­quences so this sort of pre­ven­ta­tive care helps clients as well as pub­lic health­care costs.”
