Red Cross vol­un­teers keep busy de­spite the year be­ing al­most over

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

EVEN though the year is draw­ing to a close, the lo­cal Red Cross con­tin­ues to be ac­tive and out and about in the com­mu­nity.

Cur­rently, the Euroa mem­bers are sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets for their fi­nal fundrais­ing ef­fort for the year.

As in other years, there are de­li­cious, home- baked and iced Christ­mas cakes as prizes.

Raf­fle tick­ets will be on sale out­side Bur­tons in early De­cem­ber so watch out and pur­chase tick­ets with all money raised go­ing to Red Cross In­ter­na­tional to sup­port their var­i­ous causes.

In De­cem­ber, the group will hold a brief meet­ing on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6 prior to lunch and so­cial­is­ing at the Seven Creeks Ho­tel.

All cur­rent and past mem­bers are in­vited to at­tend this fi­nal ac­tiv­ity for the year, but it would be ad­vised to con­tact Pam Case, Bev Asquith or An­nette Cock­ing which will as­sist with book­ing num­bers at the ho­tel.

The group will go into re­cess briefly over the Christ­mas pe­riod but will no doubt start prepa­ra­tions early for ‘ Red Cross Call­ing’ in March.
