THE Leongatha Bowling Club has been hosting its annual raffle for more than six years.

And this year was no different, with one local individual and one local business taking home the major prizes.

“On behalf of the Leongatha Bowling Club Sponsorship Committee, we would like to thank members and all the people who helped sell tickets,” Jo Runciman smiled.

“And, last but not least, thank you to Hartley Wells Betta Home Living for donating the prizes.

“It’s a terrific fundraiser for Leongatha Bowling Club and very popular – you can always find something at Hartley Wells.”

Jim Gibbons took home first prize, winning a $1000 Hartley Wells voucher.

“It’s absolutely fantastic. I brought the tickets for the donation, not to win.

“I work local; it doesn’t hurt to support local and goes to a good cause.”

For Jim, the monies will be going towards new appliances for their recently renovated home.

SG Offroad took out second prize – a TCL S615 Series Television.

“A question of where the TV will now go,” David Sasin of SG Offroad laughed.

“In these times, it’s cool to win and be amongst the community.”
