TWO Goroka companies have sponsored a junior lawn bowling programme to help continue the development of the sport in Eastern Highlands.
Hoffman’s Holdings Limited (K5,000) and Comsat Limited (K10,000) provided a total of K15,000 to start the programme at the Goroka Bowling Club.
Hoffman’s Holdings Limited managing director Leslie Hoffman said playing lawn bowls was all about bringing families together to have fun.
He said junior development was crucial to sustaining the sport.
“I thank the club for its acceptance of the sponsorship and willingness to coordinate the programme to teach youngsters how to play bowling,” Hoffman said.
Comsat Limited managing director Wilson Unua said: “Our K10,000 sponsorship will complement the K5,000 from Hoffman’s Holdings Limited to carry junior development forward.”
Club president Unua said the programme was the first of its kind for any bowling club in the country.
“Once the programme begins, we can be assured that the sport will be sustained into the future,” he said.
