Last week’s 13th Annual TransCare Barefoot Bowls Night Fundraiser was another fun filled success.
Despite the weather not looking very inviting the Scone Bowling Club greens were full and over $7,000 was raised that will be put to use supporting TransCare programs in the community.
“We are always grateful for the support we receive for this annual event from businesses and the community,” Jemma Anshaw, TransCare Promotions Officer said.
“Every bit helps and this year’s takings will be no different, with funds going towards supporting clients and programs to move with the digital age as well as other activities we offer”
The Annual Barefoot Bowls Night Fundraiser is accompanied by a raffle and auction, but this year the offer of a bale of hay gave TransCare a chance to give back to one of the longest standing supporters of the event.
“The suggestion was made by TransCare staff that we could auction a bale of hay on the night and pass the takings on to the Lions Club of Scone for the Need For Feed campaign,” Ms Anshaw said.
“A member of our team arranged the bale and on the night it went for $200, with Ben Farrow and Nathan Moore splitting the bill.
“The biggest thing for us in planning this annual event is knowing that everyone comes along to have a good time and when they return year after year and bring others with them to join in we know we are doing a good job.”
Focus will now turn to the second TransCare Muswellbrook Seniors Expo that will be held at the Muswellbrook RSL Club on Friday November 9.
