Prostate Cancer Charity
Message to all Clubs
Please find attached a letter I forwarded to all clubs last year.
A few clubs took up the challenge and helped raise additional funds for Gosford and Wyong Hospitals.
Our 3 clubs on the peninsular have been holding their days in June and July for several years and last year raised approximately $15000 which has enabled the hospital to purchase additional equipment for use in surgery and therefore improve the treatment and turnaround time for recovery from the operations.
We hold our day on a regular men’s Thursday however if you find you are unable to organise a day may I suggest an idea introduced by Gwandalan club, (who joined us last year) where they bought a large barrel, arranged signs to be placed on the barrel and each bowling day took the barrel around the club asking for donations, I believe since they introduced the barrel, after last years day they have raised several thousand dollars. (food for thought and an easy way to raise funds). Well done Gwandalan.
If you wish to discuss how your club can be involved I’m happy to take calls on 43424028 and let’s see what the zone can do to support this charity.
