Bowls Disaster Relief Fund

With the harsh conditions of the Australian landscape natural disasters such as floods and fires can ravish and affect areas across the country in a short space of time, but just like the Australian ethos of looking after our mates, the lawn bowls fraternity will stand united in its support for bowling clubs and communities affected by tragic events through the Bowls’ Disaster Relief Fund initiative.

Bowls Australia is committed to redirecting one-hundred percent of all sums raised back to those clubs in need, who are able to access monies from the fund via an application process (see below), with the help and knowledge of the Regional Bowls Manager network we can be across those in need as soon as possible after devastating events.

Applications for the Bowls Disaster Relief Fund are open for clubs who have been affected by recent disasters.
