Ooops! Wrong-way bowlers kick in $495

MISTAKES by lawn bowlers helped contribute to the Warrnambool City Bowls Club’s $3000 donation to Peter’s Project.

On a roll: City Memorial Bowls Club manager Rick Scott, ladies president Glenda Ritchie and Peter’s Project director Vicki Jellie.

While most of the donation was raised at the club’s ladies president charity bowls day this week, $495 came from the club’s Wrong Bias club.

Bowlers who send their bowls down the greens on the wrong bias — sending them in the wrong direction — pay a self-imposed fine that the club has donated to Peter’s Project.

Project director Vicki Jellie told bowlers at the charity day the money would help edge donations closer to the project’s $5 million target.

Ms Jellie said $4.6 million had been raised so far through great teamwork by the south-west community.
