Tyalgum to aid special pupils

THE Tyalgum public school will be better equipped to handle disabled children after a special fundraiser on August 30 at the Condong Bowls Club.

Last year an inaugural charity bowls day at the club was spectacularly successful in raising money for Tyalgum Autistic boy Delaney Cooper.

Now the aim is not only to help Delaney, but also other disabled children who attend the village's school.

Last year's bowls day was described as more relaxed than competitive, but still managed to raise $2300 for the brave young boy.

Organisers want to improve on the success of last year, where almost 100 people turned up to bowl for Delaney.

Event organiser Rayanne Ederle said all money raised will go towards teacher aide time for the school's special needs students.

“It is going to be for both Delaney and the school's special needs fund,” she said.

She said it was hoped $4000 could be raised through a $10 fee for a game of bowls, plus raffles on the day.

A bus will run from the Tyalgum Hotel at 8am at a cost of $10. The bowls start at 9am.
