The Forbes Sports and Recreation Club came alive with fun and laughter on Wednesday when the Women’s Bowling Club hosted its biggest ever Biggest Morning Tea for the Cancer Council with more than 50 people attending.
This year the event incorporated fundraising for breast cancer, as well as a celebration of Mother’s Day. The Biggest Morning Tea, and Wednesday morning bowls, is usually a ladies-only event, but this year the men were invited. “The men love coming and playing with us,” said Ann Mackay, President of the Women’s Bowling Club.
“We’re very happy with the roll-up. It’s amazing the amount of people who are willing to support the cause.” Fellow event organiser and club Secretary, Sandra Priest, agreed. “We’ve never run an event as big as this,” she said. “The Bowling Club is donating the fees for the green today, and all fundraising proceeds will go to the Cancer Council.”
