There’s not much you can do to have a great night out for only $10 but that’s all it will cost you to play on these days.
Nelson Bay Bowling Club’s General Manager Dean McCarthy told News Of The Area, “We have had a lot of success running barefoot bowls as a fundraiser for charities with organisations raising anywhere from $500 to $1000 at the event.”
The Leukemia Foundation Barefoot Bowls Event held at the club, raised close to $6000.
He believes that going barefoot bowling for charity is a fun way of making a difference.
The local community also gets behind the events helping out with meat for the barbeques.
“The event will be held under lights on the Friday night,” he said.
Beyond Blue supports people living with mental health issues.
Anxiety conditions according to Beyondblue are Australia’s most prevalent mental health issue.
“In any given year, more than two million Australians will experience anxiety, double the number who experience depression.”
“One in four Australians will experience an anxiety condition at some stage in their life,” said Beyondblue’s CEO, Georgie Harman.
