Marian Ladies Bowls Club Strikes A Heartfelt Victory For Cancer Support

Amidst the clinking of bowls and the camaraderie that defines the Marian Ladies Bowls Club, a recent event echoed a more profound purpose. Their annual Charity Day took centre stage, resonating with compassion and generosity.

This year, the club chose to extend their hands of support to the Trudy Crowley Foundation, an organisation dedicated to supporting those battling a silent beast: ovarian cancer. Two representatives from the foundation attended the event, receiving a cheque from the club and sharing insights into their work within the Mackay district.

In a heartfelt address, the foundation shed light on the ominous nature of ovarian cancer, often lurking undetected until it's too late. "What a great job they do," remarked the ladies from the bowls club.

The Trudy Crowley Foundation, named after a beacon of resilience in the face of ovarian cancer, stands as a bastion of hope and assistance.

Its aim to expose this silent killer, raising awareness and vital funds and its goal is to ensure no woman, child, partner, or friend feels alone in this battle.
