IT was country folk versus city dwellers in a bowls match to kick off Bowls WA Legacy Week.

Osborne Park Bowling Club hosted the game between the Country All Stars and State squad on Thursday, which attracted more than 200 people.

The event marked the launch of the fundraising week, run by Bowls WA and Legacy WA, which raises money for the charity.

Perth Legacy president Peter Heeney said it was fantastic to see donations start rolling in from the crowd.

“It was great to be on the green, shaking a tin and to see firsthand the support shown by the bowls community,” he said.

“If all clubs were to be involved during Bowls WA Legacy Week just think about the difference together we could make.”

The week runs from March 5 to 10 and people are encouraged to contribute at their local bowls club or online at www.legacy.com.au.
