THE suc­cess of the Cham­pagne Club Kiewa Val­ley ‘Snow­ball’ – held in July – has en­abled club pres­i­dent Amanda Bye to present Angli­care Mount Beauty Emer­gency Re­lief with a $1000 do­na­tion.

The re­lief ser­vice pro­vides much-needed help to those in need or in tem­po­rary fi­nan­cial dif­fi­culty in Mount Beauty and the district.

The ser­vice is no longer funded by the Fed­eral Govern­ment.

Re­lief co-or­di­na­tor David Mun­day said the funds pro­vided by the Cham­pagne Club were very timely.

“We are cur­rently sup­port­ing about 40 fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als in the com­mu­nity, some of whom are home­less, some are vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, and some just need a help­ing hand,” he said.

“Peo­ple use our ser­vice for many dif­fer­ent rea­sons, some sim­ple and some dif­fi­cult and com­plex and our goal is to sup­port them through those cir­cum­stances.”

Ms Bye said was grate­ful to those who sup­ported the ball this year.

“The sup­port we re­ceive en­ables the Cham­pagne Club Kiewa Val­ley to give to such a great cause and en­cour­ages ev­ery­one to think about ways they can sup­port the ser­vice,” she said.
