"The money will go toward bowling arms, measures, ball gatherers and other equipment to help some of our older bowlers," Tappenden said.

Klease said the financial outlay will present sporting clubs to have more opportunities.

"This was done directly from our marketing team and the club can now get new equipment which will attract new members," Klease said.

"We'll support any community sporting groups."

The club currently has more than 30 active members and Tappenden said he hopes the boost to the bowls club will attract new members.

"We currently have 15 male members and 18 ladies," he said.

"Ten of the 15 men are over 60 year's of age, three in their 40s and one in his 50s.

"The ladies have a couple in their 40s and some in their 60s and even in their 80s."
