Canton Mixed Bowlers Charity Pink Day.

Each year Canton Mixed Bowlers hold a charity day where bowlers dress in pink, play bowls, run raffles and hold a Cake Auction with all monies raised donated to charity.
This year's chosen charity was the Shirley Shuttle, a low cost transport service to cancer sufferers who otherwise would have great difficulty getting to and from their cancer treatment appointments.
The Shirley Shuttle service receives no funding from the government and relies solely on volunteers, sponsors and donations.
Thanks to Canton Sports Club waiving the green fees, plus bowlers supporting the Cake Auction and raffles, a cheque for $2,100 was presented by Canton Mixed Bowlers President Dave Gooch to Shirley Shuttle representative, Warren Butler.
After morning tea the bowlers took to the greens, resplendent in their pink attire, for a game of Mixed Triples with the winners decided on margins and ends won. The winning team, with a margin of 34 shots, was Geoff Thurston (Skip), Bob Bourke (2nd) and Linn Bourke (Lead).
