NZBLBA Patrons


It is our pleasure to announce that the new New Zealand Blind Lawn Bowlers Patron is Willie Carter from Auckland.

Willie Carter has had many years of involvement with the NZ association as well as the Auckland Association. In recent years Willie was the Treasurer / Secretary for the Auckland Association but his work went a lot deeper. Willie was a director and volunteer for blind lawn bowlers from the early days over 20 years ago. He has grown the sport around Auckland for years. Willie has directed various bowlers on the green over the years and is wwell respected amongst all the blind bowlers. Willie has been responsible for thousands of hours fund raising and this has enabled teams to attend national and international events as well as keeping the sport he loves running. The time Willie has given up to coach and also transport bowlers to different venues is second to none. He has been the rock behind so many of us that is only fitting that he is now our Patron.

At the 2011 AGM we also appointed twoVice Patrons. They are Shirley Houghton and Shirley Tierney. Both have given a massive amount of time for blind bowlers over the years and deserve the recognition.
