Friday 7th October: Oncology Day, Tea Gardens Women’s Bowling Club annual event to raise money for the Mater Calvary Newcastle Hospital.
A great day was had by all who attended. Bowls, lunch, a tombola and an auction. This day is only possible due to the generosity of our local businesses and clubs who donated products and gift vouchers for the tombola, a heartfelt thank you to them. Also a big thank you to those members of the Women’s Bowling Club who donated gifts and to the ladies of the Executive Committee, Social Committee and all who helped out to make this day a success. Club President Robyn Webster presented a cheque for $6000 to Mater Calvary Newcastle Hospital Ladies Auxiliary. What a great community we live in.
