Hair-raising adventures bowl ’em over

HAIRY moments and a lot of close shaves are certainties at the big barefoot bowls charity afternoon at the Yamba Bowling Club today.

The $10 entry fee includes barefoot bowls, live music, a sausage sizzle and is a donation at the culmination of Movember, the month to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer and mental health.

"Everyone is welcome for a fun afternoon while at the same time raising awareness of these men's health issues," club operations manager Steve Seymour said.

The club will turn into a clip joint as lashings of lush lip growth is measured, judged and shaved off in pursuit of further campaign donations.

"And if we get a single donation of $500 or more, bowls co-ordinator Don Freeman has pledged to shave off his hair - and I might even try to grow mine back," Mr Seymour said.
