MIRIAM Vale bowlers have joined the throng of sporting clubs across the region raising money for victims of the recent floods across Queensland.

About 50 bowlers and supporters rolled out to the Miriam Vale Bowls Club for a flood relief day on Sunday, January 29, and helped raise the fine total of $5264.

It wasn't all about the bowls on the day as people enjoyed a barbecue, spent up big on raffle tickets, got vocal during an auction and put their money where their bids were.

It was a wonderful, fun-filled and sometimes very funny day of bowls.

The club thanks the following people for their very generous donations of prizes for the day: Neal and Terri Ferris, Brett Kellett, Gail Smallcombe, Bororen Hotel/ Motel, Bororen General Store, Bororen Produce, Col Olsen, Jeff and Michelle Bolt, Doreen Devlin, Dan Costello Real Estate and Allen Cross.

The club would also like to thank everyone that participated in the day and dug deep into their pockets for this very worthy cause to help out their fellow Queenslanders.
