Tweed bowlo pledges $20,000

Tweed Heads Bowls Club has pledged to donate $20,000 to The Salvation Army for the Queensland Floods victims.

The club’s finance manager Cynthia Ryan said the cheque would be presented to Captain Deborah Robinson on behalf of The Salvation Army on Saturday night.

Members had already independently raised $8000 in donation boxes around the club, Miss Ryan said.

The club has also organised a collection for supplies for flood victims.

The Salvation Army and the club collaborated together to find out what the flood victims needed most.

A statement from the club said there was already an oversupply of clothes donated to the flood victims so supplies would be a useful donation.

"A package of supplies to get back into their homes and cleaning might be useful to people," the statement read.

"All these products as we know can be very expensive to re-purchase and my goodness they are going to need it.”

Tweed Bowls Club held similar events for the Victorian bushfires and Cyclone Larry.

“The event we held for the bushfires raised $45,000,” Cynthia Ryan said.

Suggested donation items include scrubbing brushes, broom heads, cleaning detergents, cleaning utensils and personal products.

The collection will take place Wednesday, and Thursday, from 9am to 4pm.
