EIGHTEEN ladies participated in the Hearing Australia Sponsors Day held at Innisfail Bowls Club on Wednesday afternoon.

Ladies from Innisfail, Silkwood, and South Johnstone played a closely contested three bowl triples competition, with two games of 10 ends, and enjoyed a lavish afternoon tea at half time.

Prizes were awarded to first, second, and third place for the teams with the most points plus margins.

Third place winners were Helen Paterson, Joan Atkinson, and Dian Catelan, whilst in second place was the team of Jean Messina, Bev Anderson, and Ann Rule.

The winners were Eileen Hamann, Vera Rowe, and Diana O’Brien, who were the only team to win both games.

Hearing Australia is a government funded organization that has been helping Australians rediscover the joy of sound for over 70 years. 

Many bowlers, as well as members of the public, took advantage of the free hearing tests conducted by Jayne Martin, North Queensland Community Hearing Advisor, in the bus located in the Innisfail Bowls Club carpark.

This bus, which comes from Brisbane twice a year, stops in at locations from Cooktown to Cardwell.

The Innisfail ladies are extremely grateful to Hearing Australia for their generous sponsorship.
