Join Harbord Bowling Club for an evening on the green and help raise vital funds for Archie.

GREAT FRIENDS. GREAT FOOD. GREAT FUN - Summer Nights on the Green, a lawn bowling tournament and fundraising event, bringing people together to support ‘Archie’ - a little boy born with a very rare condition called Anophthalmia causing him to be born with no eyes.

Archie was diagnosed with Sox2 Syndrome soon after birth, a condition which affects 1:250000 births. His specific mutation is so rare that there is only one other recorded case in the world.

Archie’s future prognosis is unknown and his journey since birth has understandably taken its toll on his family, as complications associated with his syndrome have developed over time. 

  • Archie is completely blind and has no light perception.

  • Archie has several brain abnormalities which have caused global development delays

  • Archie has a mild/moderate neurosensory hearing loss requiring him to wear hearing aids.

  • Archie is entirely peg fed through his tummy due to silent aspiration (fluid leaking into the lungs). As a result he does not eat anything orally through his mouth.

  • Archie has a rare form of epilepsy which could cause his heart rate to drop dangerously low. This could be fatal.

  • Archie has a severe motor delay. He is currently working on getting stronger, more consistent head control.

  • Since birth Archie has had over 15 separate hospital admissions with various respiratory infections

Harbord Bowling Club’s fundraising goal is to raise vital funds to purchase a brand new Volkswagen Comfortline Multivan fitted out to accommodate Archie in his wheelchair and all his special needs equipment!

When you meet Archie you are instantly drawn to his gorgeous, contagious personality and smile.

So get a team together and roll your way to raise vital funds for Archie
