A day on the green at Beenleigh
The Beenleigh Bowls Club recently showed their support for victims of the recent flooding by having a fundraising day.
The Muddies bowls section donated all green fees and profit from the Friday night meat raffles. The club donated the barefoot bowls green fees, as well as $5 from each XXXX and parmy sold over the weekend.
Beenleigh and its surrounds were inundated with water from the Logan and Albert rivers with many houses and businesses flooded or closed. Limited street access to the club and reduced travel options, plus the soaked greens, meant our club suffered financially. However, members were able to put it all aside and have a marvellous day.
We welcomed many barefoot bowlers to our club, which is important in keeping our cherished sport alive. Hopefully, some of them will consider becoming bowls members and come back to the top of the town on a regular basis.
