Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

CHRIST­MAS came early in the Burnett this year, thanks to the Mundubbera CWA.

The as­so­ci­a­tion’s Christ­mas in July event on Satur­day at­tracted around 40 guests.

CWA mem­ber Chris­tine Will­cocks said the group raised $1000 which would help with com­mu­nity projects.

“More than 40 guests en­joyed a tra­di­tional Christ­mas lunch as well as party games and a visit from Santa,” Mrs Will­cocks said.

“The CWA ladies ap­pre­ci­ated gen­er­ous dona­tions of prizes from the com­mu­nity.”

The CWA was formed in 1922 when coun­try women were fight­ing iso­la­tion and a lack of health fa­cil­i­ties.

The CWA will hold sev­eral more fundrais­ers this year.

“The next fundraiser for the CWA will be the Cent Sale held on Septem­ber 2 with funds go­ing to the Ro­tary Lodge,” Mrs Will­cocks said.

“We’ll also be do­ing the Mel­bourne Cup Day on Novem­ber 7 with pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards LifeF­light and the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tors.”
