Help raise funds to bowl over criminal activity

LOCAL businesses are once again bowling over Crime Stoppers Fraser Coast committee members with great prizes for their biggest annual fundraiser.

The committee will hold its 14th annual Lawn Bowls Fundraiser this Sunday, April 12 from 12.30pm at the Maryborough Bowls Club.

Committee secretary Rob Wilson said quite a few teams were expected.

"Everyone is welcome to come along, and you don't need to know how to bowl - there will be bowls club members on hand to help out," Mr Wilson said.

"We also have some great little prizes including cosmetics, car products, vouchers and the popular dinner for five.

"We get great support from local businesses."

The Lawn Bowls Fundraiser costs $10 and includes a ticket into the multi-draw raffle and a sausage sizzle lunch.

The bar will be open and bowls supplied.

For more information, phone Rob Wilson 41214379 or book your team at the Maryborough Bowls Club on 41213285 or visit at 506 Kent St.

Funds raised from the event go to the Crime Stoppers reward system for those who make anonymous calls about illegal activity that lead to convictions.

  • If you are interested in joining the committee, sponsoring or donating, phone Jim Kirk on 4121 4183.
  • People with information that might help police with an investigation should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously any time of day or night. Phone 1800 333 000, visit www.crimestoppersqld.com.au or download the Crime Stoppers Queensland mobile app and use it to report suspicious activity.
  • Crime Stoppers is a charitable community volunteer organisation working in partnership with the Queensland Police Service.
