2013 Bowls for the Oldies Project
Bowls for the Oldies Charity Aged care community work Woodturners of the Hunter
The Aged Care Facilities that are to benefit from our project this year are:-
John Hunter Childrens Hospital
Hillside Assisted Living Apartments, Mt Hutton
Please make the bowls to the dimensions on the drawing. Also, please be mindful of the finishes that are used,
as the odours from some oils and waxes permeate into the sweets. By making and giving these bowls away the
reputation of Woodturners of the Hunter is placed on public display and I ask that you be mindful of this and
produce bowls that you are proud to put your name upon. On the base of the bowls please only write your
name and the timber species, no dates or messages.
We need 200 bowls by late November to allow time for packaging and distribution.
I look forward to your support with this project.
