CWA look­ing for mem­bers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE CWA are al­ways look­ing for more mem­bers to join its or­gan­i­sa­tion, which raises money for projects all around the world and pro­vides sup­port for women and fam­i­lies in the com­mu­nity.

Their char­ity projects aim for sus­tain­abil­ity, like in New Guinea where they pro­vide money for clean water and for women to grow veg­eta­bles so they have in­come and can send their chil­dren to school.

Port Dou­glas CWA has an ac­tion-packed year in store for its mem­bers and the com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing Fri­day af­ter­noon games, young fam­i­lies af­ter­noon, Christ­mas in July, po­etry writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion, monthly po­etry and pasta night and a cake cook­ery com­pe­ti­tion.

“CWA is there for what­ever you want it to be, if peo­ple want to do craft or learn how to sow free of charge then we have peo­ple quite happy to teach how to fol­low a pat­tern,” CWA mem­ber Faye Hud­son said.

“CWA is so much more than just scones, last year we had a public cri­sis ru­ral fund and raised mil­lions of dol­lars for all those peo­ple who lost ev­ery­thing with the floods.”

For more in­for­ma­tion or to join the CWA in ei­ther Moss­man or Port Dou­glas, con­tact the di­vi­sion pres­i­dent Meg Trim­ble on 0427 965 526.
