Pumicestone Passage Probus enjoying a game of Croquet and raising much needed funds for the Neighbou

Recently the Bribie Island Croquet Club had a fund-raising day to support the Local Neighbourhood Community Centre which helps families who are really doing it tough, especially at this time of year. Unfortunately, the centre was broken into with so many of their essential operating equipment stolen or smashed. The Pumicestone Probus Club decided they wanted to help and entered 3 teams to help raise money and support them get back on their feet.

Most of the club had never held a croquet mallet before, let alone played croquet! The day was full of laughs and good old fashion bantering. Over 18 service clubs competed from around the region and Bribie Croquet Club were great hosts.

For the past 2 years the Pumicestone Probus club won the much sort after mallet prize, however this year despite a fantastic effort by all, they came a very close second by only half a point. It was a great game by all clubs.

The Pumicestone Passage Probus club raised $2,000 on the day for the Bribie Island Neighbourhood Watch Centre
