Community recognition

Eurobodalla Meals on Wheels has been very fortunate over the last few months.

A number of community groups have sought to support the work of the Cooperative through generous donations.

The Commonwealth Bank has given a donation of $500 recognising the work of our organisation within the community. This donation will assist our meals programme.

The Moruya Golf Club held a Golf Day on June 23rd with the proceeds being donated to us to assist with the training and support of our wonderful volunteers. As a new programme is developed over the next six months which is designed to make sure of clients are ready for the summer, this  donation will assist with resouces and materials.

We are very grateful to the Soldiers Club in Batemans Bay for their most generous donation of $10,000. This money was applied for under the ClubGrants scheme and will assist with the running costs of our bus over the next year. This is a huge contribution to the success of our Group Social Support programme.

Our bus picks up, and returns home, our clients four days a week. The Clients are taken to the activity centre in Narooma each Monday and in Batemans Bay each Thursday. On Tuesday and Friday the bus takes clients to all manner of places as part of our Lunch About programme. For these we could go out of the Shire on Tuesdays and to venues within the Shire on Fridays. Sometimes we stay 'home' and we do an activity in Tomakin.

The three Rotary Clubs (Batemans Bay, Moruya, Narooma) from within the Shire, and the Moruya Jockey Club have dedicated their community race day on 22 December to Eurobodalla Meals on Wheels and Yumaro. The funds raised will support a 'people mover' which the two organisations will use to transport clients to a range of events during the day and in the evenings. The race day is one part of the fundraising and the selling of raffle tickets from August is another. These will help raise the funds towards the projects goal. We are most grateful and encourage everyone to get behind this effort.

These donations are most generous and our Coopertiave is most appreciative of the support and encourganement given by these seven community minded groups.
