Clubs SA Charity Bowls Day 2016

Clubs SA was joined by Bowls SA for the 2016 Charity Bowls Day. This year's nominated charity was the Cora Barclay Centre for hearing impaired children.

The venue was provided by Adelaide Bowling Club and with fantastic support from the sponsors of the day, we were able to raise $8,030. 

It was amazing that so many people decided to put work and other priorities aside to come along to support this great day and raise some money for the Cora Barclay Centre.

Representative Andrew Peterson introduced Ole and his family who have been personally helped by the Cora Barclay Centre.

The “Loud Shirt Day” theme, which is Cora Barclay’s signature fundraiser, was won by Para Hills Community Club, Parafield Gardens Community Club and Sarah Constructions.
