IT was many months in the planning and it took many hands on deck to make the Tea Gardens Women’s Bowling Club’s annual mixed Oncology Bowls Day a great success.

The bowls and lunch day is the club’s major fundraiser for the year with all proceeds going to the Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital.
“It began after one of the husbands lost his wife to breast cancer,” President of the Women’s Bowling Club Robyn Webster told News Of The Area.
Apart from the action on the greens, there was plenty of action inside the club with raffles and tombolas, as well as tables overflowing with donated goods to be sold to raise funds.
“The Oncology Bowls Day has always been a successful day due to the generosity of our local businesses and community organisations,” Robyn said.
“Last year we raised over $6,000.”
Calvary Hospital said, “Donations, no matter the financial value are always appreciated by the hospital because they enable us to purchase equipment and help us continue to enhance our provision of comfort and care for the benefit of our patients.”
