Our CWA digs deep

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

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.”

If you would like more in­for­ma­tion pop into the Moss­man CWA on Front St, Moss­man or con­tact pres­i­dent Mau­reen Bur­combe on 0439 027 797.
