First prize for the golf competition
First prize for the golf competition

IF YOU are into sport, fundraising or just want to enjoy a great day out, head along to the Bowraville Recreation Club on Saturday.

The Bowra-Macksville United Hospital Auxiliary will run a sports day, consisting of an 18-hole golf competition and a game of Triples in bowls.

The golf starts anytime in the morning until noon and the bowlers need names in by noon for a 1pm start.

As well as swinging and rolling, there will be a raffle, sausage sizzle and great prizes.

Best of all, all money raised will go to the Macksville Hospital.

The main prize for the golf competition is a magnificent chess table made by Bob Irvine, one of the regular golfers at the picturesque Bowraville layout.

The Bowraville and Macksville United Hospital Auxiliaries (UHA) are now one big happy family after moving to amalgamate the two branches earlier this year.

The marriage enables volunteers to continue their fundraising efforts for the hospital under the guidance of one executive committee.
