St Patrick’s fun bowls day fundraiser

IRISH LUCK: Mansfield bowlers – dressed in green for St Patrick’s Day – cheered for Irish luck before starting play last Tuesday. The day raised more than $300 for the Mansfield District Hospital.

SOCIAL bowls may never be the same again after last week’s St Patrick’s Day fundraiser.

Green on greens was the theme of the day with all proceeds going to the Mansfield District Hospital – in total some $382.

Players were asked to wear something green to celebrate the patron saint’s day – and all things Irish were played.

Some 28 bowlers enjoyed the day which was sponsored by Will Twycross.

And the frivolity may have got in the way of some great play as there were no two game winners – but the team of Julie Holland and Theo Scheltinga won over Graham Bricknell, John Holland and Cheryl Scheltinga with a win and a draw.
