ONLY the keenest barefoot bowlers shed their shoes during winter's chill.

But when he's playing to raise funds for the Rosewood Lions Club, Bernie Newell doesn't mind having cold feet.

The club teamed up with local friendship and advocacy group Friends of Division 10 to organise the charity bowls event at the Rosewood Bowls Club.

As Rosewood Lions president, Mr Newell said the money generated would help support the club in all its endeavours.

The 69-year-old said the club had existed in Rosewood for almost 40 years.

"We're a service club dedicated to assisting and supporting our local community," he said.

"We're particualrly proud of the work we've done to aid Cabanda Care, which is a community-based nursing home."
