Gaythorne Club News
A Bushfire Fundraising Fete will be held on Saturday 21 March 2020 Hosted by Gaythorne Bowls Sports and Community Club and Wests Mitchelton Rugby League Football Club.
Gaythorne Bowls Club and Wests Mitchelton Rugby League Club are organising a Fire Fundraising Fete, as a joint venture, to raise funds for the bushfire appeal.
This event will be held at both clubs (across both grounds, next door to each other) on Saturday 21 March 2020
18 and 20 Prospect Rd, Mitchelton 4053.
The Fire Fundraising Fete will be from 9am until 4pm on Saturday 21 March 2020.
Entry for the public will be free but a gold coin donation to go to the fire appeal would be greatly appreciated.
Parking will be available in the football club Carpark off Prospect Road and in surrounding streets.
Organisers are planning indoor stalls in the bowls clubhouse and outdoor market stalls around the football grounds. It is anticipated that stall holders will be selling a variety of goods, as well as the standard lines of cakes and plants, etc.
Bouncy castles and other entertainment for children will be across both sites and also Come and Try Bowls on the bowls green.
It is hoped that the clubs will be able to have a fire engine, an army vehicle and some old time cars on display.
Raffles will also be on offer with many of the prizes being donated from local businesses.
This is the first time our 2 clubs have combined to make an event such as this and it is hoped that they can provide an enjoyable day out for everyone on the day and to provide some additional funding to help people affected by the ongoing bushfires this summer season.
