The Streaky Bay Indoor Bowls Club was kept busy throughout December.
On December 4 the club ran a sausage sizzle and drinks at the Craft and Produce Market, which was held at the Streaky Bay sporting complex.
The event was well supported by the community.
Following that came the Christmas dinner which was hosted at the caravan park kiosk on December 7.
This was well attended by club members, with 23 people at the dinner.
Later in the month, on December 21, the club drew its raffle that it had been running for some weeks.
Money raised from the raffle and the sausage sizzle allowed the bowls club to purchase a much needed defibrillator.
We are thankful because without the support from sponsors and the community we would not have been able to get the defibrillator.
The busy month then ended with the hosting of a sausage sizzle at the Streaky bay New Years Eve fireworks show.
The club would like to thank all members and non-members who helped with ticket sales, attendance and sausage sizzles.
Club secretary Wayne Miller said that support was important.
“We had a fairly active period with a number of things going at once and it was important to have that support,” he said.
“We are thankful because without the support from sponsors and the community we would not have been able to get the defibrillator.
“The support went a long way to raising money.”
The club would like to extend a warm thank you to a number of local businesses for their donations towards the raffle, including Perlubie Sea (B&B), Becks Sip and Save, Streaky Surf and Style, Streaky Bay Chemist, Bay Funktion, West Coast Trading Post, Post Office, Moceans, Caravan Park Kiosk, Crowders, Elders Real Estate, Hair Raz’n, Foodland, Killa’s, Bunnings Port Lincoln.
Thanks also go to club members who donated to the raffle.
The prize winners for the raffle were Dean Whitford, Rose Wallace, Yvonne Watkinson and Katy McInnis.
Mr Miller said the club hoped to be involved in further fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for new equipment for the club.
