Lithgow City Bowls: Rain doesn’t dampen Allan Family Day spirit

Lithgow City Women’s Bowling Club held its annual Allan Family Day on Tuesday, September 4.

The day, which has been held for 32 years in memory of club foundation member and past president Violet Allan, is a charity day, which has supported many different causes throughout its history. 

On Tuesday, the charity day raised funds for Anglicare and the Helping Farmers in the Central West appeal.

“In view of the hardship the people of Toorawenah are going through, we wanted to do our bit to help that,” Mrs Allen’s son Wayne said on the day. 

“We look forward to continuing to hold this day for many years into the future.”

While Wayne has attended the event before, this was the first time Violet Allan’s great grandson Ben was in attendance.

While no bowls were played due to rain, all the clubs that attended had a great time contesting the trophy through rounds of trivia. 

Clubs attended from Lithgow Workies, Oberon, Majellan in Bathurst, Wallerawang, Portland and Lawson. 

Workies took top honours in the trivia, claiming the Allan trophy for 2018.
