Bowls GR8 for Brains project provides regular Social Lawn Bowling Sessions as a proactive solution to the ever-increasing suicide rates and to tackle isolation that is usually associated with people who struggle with Mental Health Challenges.

The Lavington group operates twice monthly and provides non-competitive lawn bowling – including tuition – and a coffee and chat.

The target group at Lavington consists mostly of Veterans of the Armed services and Veterans of Emergency Services (front line workers) who live with the challenges of Post-Traumatic Stress and often physical injuries sustained because of their service to Australia.
