Charity day for Cambodian orphans
A local bowling club will host a bowls day for a charity that educates orphans in Cambodia.
Sporties at Woy Woy will bring local bowlers together on Sunday, March 4, to raise money for a Choice Cambodia school.
Almost 200 children from two villages outside the Cambodian capital attend the school each day.
Charity day organiser Mr John Orme has been sponsoring a young boy, named David, who was orphaned last year and had to miss school to catch rats and snakes to eat.
"Most families in the two villages survive on around 50 cents per week and Choice also delivers water and manage women's health issues," Mr Orme said.
"We need bowlers, good or bad and prizes or cash donations can be dropped off at Sporties," he said.
All money raised goes directly to education and health care of the children, ranging in age from infants to late teens.
Bowls will start at 9am followed by lunch and raffles.
