On the 15th August the club was very proud to have Colleen Piketh (current Protea bowler) visit the club and join us for an afternoon of bowls. Having such an accomplished bowler visiting our club we decided to turn the event into a fund raiser for Helderberg Hospice as a number of our members work for them. The event was also used as an opportunity to bring non-bowlers along to enjoy an afternoon of bowls with a Protea player and to get to chat to her.
The weather was perfect, considering it is the middle of winter, and we had more than 70 people pitch up for the event. We played a spider at the begging with people donating to Hospice as an entry to the event.
Huge thank you to WP Bowls (Taryn Bright) for setting up the visit form Colleen and to the various club members that pulled off a very successful event.
