Community Service FMA 2016
The commencement of another new year, 2016, and we all hope for pleasing results from our efforts during the coming twelve months.
The charity committee is again supporting the Bankstown Hospital and are to purchase equipment, which has been identified as urgent items by the hospital staff, for the ambulatory care, respiratory wards, the antenatal clinic and the medical assessment unit. Bankstown Hospital assists members of Revesby Workers’ Club and the local community in their time of need and we need to support the ongoing expansion of the hospital services with new modern equipment.
A great charity committee stalwart Phyllis Aldridge is leaving the area and we wish her all the best in her new venture. Phyllis, who was also a member of the Revesby Ladies Group, assisted in boosting fund raising with numerous activities and we will certainly miss her charming smile.
Revesby Workers’ Club in the lead up to the school holidays again in 2015 supported twenty seven schools in the local area and Brooklyn Public school in the Mooney Mooney Club area with a cash donation for use in advancing the children’s education.
In coming months the charity committee will be operating our Southern Highlands wine tour – limited seats remain available, a ladies fashion parade (26th February), a barefoot bowls day (6th March), the Berry Markets and town tour (1st May a popular day out). Christmas in July will be on the 24th July and we will be auctioning a painting donated to the committee from a member of the Revesby Writer’s Group and well known painter Ms Fay Joseph.
During the next months the winter sporting clubs will be signing on at their designated grounds and at Revesby Workers’ Club. Come along, join in supporting your chosen sport and the volunteers who operate Revesby Workers’ Club junior and senior sporting sub clubs and enjoy the winter months with them.
With the new year with us there is always a need to locate volunteers for assistance with the elderly in our community either by calling on Bankstown Meals on Wheels or Bankstown Canterbury Community Transport or Bankstown City Aged Care and offer some of your time delivering meals, driving or being a carer for one or two days during a month. Further information can be obtained by calling 97721398.
