Money raised for sick children
THE bowl sure did hit the jack at Realway Property Consultants first bowls night as $4500 was raised for sick children.
Bundaberg Health Service Foundation manager Maria Burnet said she was thrilled to receive the donation and the money would go towards the Bundaberg Hospitals children's ward.
"We have a long wish list and this will help support us," Ms Burnet said.
"It will go towards non-government funded equipment and help enhance the lives of the little patients."
Realway property consultant Brent Illingworth said it was the businesses first attempt at a barefoot bowls night and deemed it a success.
"This was our first fundraiser in a series of events - we hope to hold many more down the track," he said.
Karla Kirchner knows how important it is for the children's ward to receive a boost of money as her eight-year-old son Luan had stayed many nights there.
"Luan has hyper ige syndrome which makes his skin itch constantly," Mrs Kirchner said.
"We have been in hospital for the past six days and I think it's really great these guys can help out the children."
