Prostate cancer day raises $7500
Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club held their annual Prostate Cancer Day in memory of former life member Mr Ron Pursehouse on Thursday, July 21, raising $7500.
One-hundred bowlers attended the day for a game of bowls and raffles.
An auction was held of a framed Wallaby jersey signed by and presented by Mr Eric Tweedale, the oldest surviving member of the first Wallaby side to tour Great Britain after the Second World War during the 1940s.
Many of the raffle prizes were donated by local businesses.
"The major prize of a five night holiday at Gallipoli Court Forster was won by local resident Ms Roslyn Banks," said club publicity officer Mr Ian Jarratt.
"The auctions highest bidder was also a local, Mr Harry Lake.
"The proceeds of the day will be presented to Central Coast Local Health District to enable Gosford and Wyong Hospitals to purchase much needed modern equipment for use in prostate and urological diagnosis, treatment and care at both hospitals.
"This assists in helping patients to have less intrusive operations and reduce recovery times," Mr Jarratt said.
