Kick off your shoes, warm up the shoulder and get ready to bowl for a good cause next month at the North Bowling Club. 

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) works to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes and as part of its annual fundraising it is holding a 24-hour cycling event in Adelaide. 

Aaron Darly and Dave Shoobridge are set to ride in it but require funding to get involved.

To raise the money required a social barefoot bowls event has been organised for Saturday, March 2. Teams of three to five people can take part in two games from 3:30pm to 7:30pm, with the bowls to start at 4pm with the cost of $20 per team. A barbecue will also be on offer. 

Call Trevor Walsh on 0488 252 074 to register but get in quick as spots are limited.

“We would like to thank the businesses that are supporting this event,” Walsh said. “Namely those at Top End Meat, Coles, Globe, the Palace Hotel, Silver City Cinema, the Sturt Club, Outback Pharmacies, McLeods Traditional and Amanda Johnson as well as the North Bowling Club. 

“With some time to go until the event we’re hoping a few more businesses may like to come on board.”

This Saturday will also see a mix of acoustic live entertainers at the Palace Hotel. There’s a $5 cover charge with those proceeds and a portion of bar sales going to the JDRF.
