Horsham tenpin bowling sensation Sophie Martin’s plans to travel to Paris for this month’s World Bowling Junior Championships received a major boost from generous Wimmera people and businesses.
Martin, 16, was picked as part of a four-person Australian squad to compete at the championships earlier this year.
It will be the first time she has represented Australia after previously having suited up for Victoria in several competitions.
Martin has been part of the 12-person Australian training squad for more than two years.
To help fund her trip to Paris, Martin has been reaching out to Wimmera companies for sponsorship.
Last week service group Downer Utilities organised a fundraising barbecue at the under-construction Murra Warra Wind Farm to support Martin.
Contractors including Downer Roads, MEH Earthmoving, Civilex, CHS, Multiworks and RJE helped raise $1467, while Downer Utilities presented Martin with a further $2000.
Downer Utilities’ Craig Paterson presented a cheque, along with a Downer bag, jacket, polo shirt, cap, beanie and water bottle to Martin.
Martin spoke to Downer workers and thanked them for their support and donations.
The World Bowling Junior Championships will be from March 17 to 24.
