The team will be here to help out around the club and will be more than happy to have a rollup or two.

This will be a great opportunity for some new people who are interested in learning bowls as well as our current members to meet and get a few tips perhaps from the team..

Cancer Day Raises $7,000

A sea of pink and blue graced our bowling greens on Sunday 26th May as “the friendliest little club on the Coast” held its Annual Cancer Charity Day for the 16th year. Pink wigs, tutu’s, blue bandanas, hats of blue and pink were the uniform for over 80 fun loving bowlers. The greens were full, the club house was pumping and the sausages sizzling.

16 years ago, Ladies President Edna Harrison, along with Toni Buckley, held the first Cancer Charity Day on the balcony at her Coolangatta unit. The Beach House Resort loaned Edna furniture to put on her balcony to accommodate the 50 guests attending.  Entry was $10 entry for a cup of tea, scones and rainbow sandwiches made by the ladies.  One raffle prize was on offer – the prize being a beautiful bunch of flowers. This first Charity Day raised a whopping $700.

Edna and Toni held the Charity Day the following year on her balcony when it was suggested future Charity Days be held at the Coolangatta Bowls Club.  Coolangatta Pie Shop and Bakers Delight have supported the club over the years with their scones and bread for which we are very appreciative.

This Day has raised well in excess of $20,000 over the years. Heads shaved this year were Barbara McGrath, Susan Sealby and Gail Rottier under the expert clipper hands of hairdressers Lin Phillips along with Suzie and Ivan from the HAIR Salon at our neighbouring Senior Citizens Centre, who kindly donated their time and skills.  These 3 girls alone raised over $2,500 for the head shave.

A cheque for $7,000 will be presented to the Oncology Unit of Tweed Heads Hospital.

A great day was had by all.  Call the “friendliest little club on the coast” on 5536 6677 for membership enquiries or come to our free coaching on Tuesdays 3pm to 4pm.  Remember “the little ring goes on the inside” and you can’t go wrong.  Happy Bowling.
