Our CWA digs deep
MOSSMAN’S Country Women’s Association has dug deep for the Dying Matters Coalition and is inviting all women to join their organisation and make new friends while giving back to the community.
The committed CWA branch donated $300 to the not-for-profit community organisation Dying Matters Coalition with money raised from their Easter raffle.
The team of 16 women is led by president Maureen Burcombe who moved to Australia three years ago from the UK and said the group organises crafts morning, jumble sales, cards for seniors and raffles.
“We need some new blood to give us other ideas of what to do,” she said.
“Our goal is to have the hall refurbished and we need to raise the money ourselves and need fresh ideas.”
Hall convenor and former president Elizabeth “Ducky” O’Shea said anyone with a couple of spare hours should join the CWA.
“I do this for the social aspect and have lots of fun and we definitely need new members and new ideas,” she said.
“And members from the CWA are joining the Dying Matters Coalition, we want to get it up and running so people don’t have to go away for palliative care.
“If you want to join contact us or come down to the hall on a Wednesday when we’re all here - we had a few people come join our craft morning just by walking by.”
