Bowling for a cause

PREPARED to be bowled over.

The Rotary Club of Kingaroy is holding a Charity Lawn Bowls Carnival at the Kingaroy Lawn Bowls Club this Saturday.

The club's John Bastable said it was a fun day where anyone could come along and play.

"Bowlers and non-bowlers are invited to turn up and enjoy themselves," he said.

"The funds raised will be used towards the urgent renovations of two bathrooms at the South Burnett Private Hospital at Markwell Street."

And to add to the excitement the Rotarians will be running a goose club with prizes to be won.

And there will also be additional raffles and novelty prize up for grabs during the day.

The event costs $40 for a team of a four, with lawn bowls available and people are asked to wear flat shoes.

Afternoon tea and refreshments will be provided, and a bar will operate throughout.

To register call the bowls club by tomorrow on 4162 1404 between 4pm and 6pm.  

Alternatively contact Vince Evans on 0499 366 007.
