A cheque presentation last week from the South Grafton Ex Services Bowling Clubs, Thursday social bowls group has benefited the Grafton Community Bus.

Grafton Community Bus treasurer John Price said that the cheque for $700 would be a big help to the running of the community bus, which operates through the generous donations and contributions from the community.

South Grafton Ex Services Bowling Club president Ian Knox said that the donation was the proceeds of money raised throughout the year, from the groups swear jar.

“Each year we choose a charity group to donate the money to,” Mr Knox said.
“It’s just a fun thing to raise money for the community.
“This year and for the next three years, we’ve decided that we are going to donate the money to the cancer kids of Grafton (through Redkite),” he said
