Friendship and Charity Day Pine Rivers Ladies’ Bowls Club
By Susan Williams
The annual Friendship and Charity Day was recently held at Pine Rivers Ladies’ Bowls Club. This day celebrates friendships and enjoyment in the sport of lawn bowls, as well as raising funds for the president’s selected charity. It is a free day for all club members, encouraging players to formulate their own teams of their special bowling friends.
More than 90 people attended this special day, with many ladies sporting the charity colour of purple, the chosen colour for DV Connect (Domestic Violence) which is this year’s president’s charity.
Many members brought delicious homemade produce such as pickles, jams and cakes, plus potted plants, crafts and gifts and put them for sale on the fundraising stalls.
This year the fundraising amounted to $1,800 which was a great effort by all who contributed.
After a fun morning of bowls, a tasty lunch comprising of sandwiches, cake, tea and coffee was provided on the outside deck. This was then followed by raffles and 20 ‘out of the hat’ winners sponsored by Chris Deutschmann.
Everyone enjoyed the day which was celebrated in a relaxed and harmonious atmosphere. We all look forward to the next Friendship and Charity Day 2022.
