In December, the Bellata Public and Bellata Mobile Schools were surprised by a wonderful donation from the East Cessnock Bowling Club.

The donations, which occurred prior to Christmas, saw the lucky students given new toys just before Santa’s arrival.

The toy-drive was organised by East Cessnock Bowling Club manager Marlene Hartog.

The club’s members have been keen supporters of the Narrabri Shire region in recent times.

In October 2019 the club brought a trailer full of toys and essentials which was accompanied by Australian boxer Troy O’Meley who ran a boxing clinic for kids in Narrabri.
