Rolling up for better mental and physcial health- Bowls GR8 for Brains
Darryl Coventry is one of the co founders of Bowls GR8 for Brains who spoke with ABC about the positive impacts that Lawn Bowls has on people. It helps those who may need to get out of house, take mind off work or home, helps with physical fitness and allows friendships to be formed- assisting with social interaction. The movement hopes to have a proactive solution to getting people out of home and into community to assist with a more healthy mental state and walk in a positive direction. The program aims for more social groups to be in bowling clubs creating a community bringing a holistic approach to mental health and sport.
