There is no denying the Upper Hunter community is a supportive one, this was displayed once again at the TransCare Annual Barefoot Bowls Night.
TransCare and event partner the Lions Club of Scone are set to enjoy a healthy boost as the final figures are tallied according to TransCare promotions officer Jemma Anshaw.
“We are so grateful for the ongoing support of this event despite the difficult situation everyone is in,” Ms Anshaw said.
“It really was an emotional moment when doing the sums on the night, takings were pleasingly above expectations.
“Despite it being a fundraiser we go into the night with the view of it being a fun night out for the community to try and get away from the daily issues the drought brings, so still being able to raise this kind of money is a credit to everyone who takes part.”
Profits from the night will be split down the middle with the Lions Club of Scone to support their Local Farmers Drought Relief Fund providing aid to people who need it in the area.
The fund offers water, care packages and gift vouchers to Scone residents on the land who are being impacted by the ongoing dry conditions. Money raised by the local Lions stays in this area.
Major sponsors and supporters of the Annual Barefoot Bowls Night included Scone Bowling Club, Scone Equine Hospital, Radio Hunter Valley, Warburton Real Estate, Farrow Mechanical, Nathan Moore Tiling, and Scone Outdoor.
