Charity bowlers raise $995
Charity bowlers raised $995 at Woy Woy Sporties at their July Charity Bowls Day.
"Only 32 bowlers braved the cold weather at our July event, but our numbers were bolstered by the Woy Woy Leagues Social Club and our other supporters," said event organizer, Mr Ken Dixon.
"We raised $795 on the day, but a donation of $100 from the Pelicans Fishing Club and another $100 from the Wednesday bowlers increased the takings to $995.
"On top of that, the Woy Woy Lions Club recently donated $500 to the cause, which brought our year-to-date total to around $8300," Mr Dixon said.
The money raised is donated to Central Coast Kids in Need, which uses the money to assist families who have seriously ill children with prolonged illness, Mr Dixon said.
The money is used to defray the costs of accommodation for the families, to cover travel costs, equipment requirements and pharmacy accounts.
