Last day to get CWA good­ies

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Gizelle Ghidella

FRI­DAY is the last chance to pick up de­li­cious home­made Christmas good­ies at the Port Dou­glas CWA.

An as­sort­ment of Christmas cakes, cook­ies, short­bread, jams and chut­ney will be avail­able for sale just in time for Christmas par­ties and lunch.

Port Dou­glas CWA sec­re­tary Vivi­enne Ruf­fles said all pro­ceeds will be do­nated to the Ru­ral Cri­sis fund.

“A to­tal of $6 mil­lion was raised and do­nated by CWA branches through­out Queens­land,” Ms Ruf­fles said. “It goes to­wards buy­ing fuel, feed and wa­ter. It’s also sup­ported those ef­fected by re­cent bush­fires.”

Branch pres­i­dent Pat Gil­bert thanked the com­mu­nity for their support.

“They’ve been so great, and vis­i­tors too and tradies, the SES, po­lice, paramedics and coun­cils work­ers who stop by on a Fri­day to pick up af­ter­noon tea,” she said. “We’ll be back in Fe­bru­ary, if the sign’s out the front we have cakes.”
