Every three months Australian Seniors Insurance Agency supports two local community groups who are in need of funding and invite customers to vote for their favourite. The group with the most votes will receive a donation of $1,000.
CWA Galston started in 1958 and is a branch of the CWA of NSW and Nepean Group. The branch is set in the semirural Hills area and has a long history of supporting the local community. It is not a big branch, but the members are enthusiastic and committed to help out where they can. This is done in the usual way, with stalls and events such as fashion parades and special days celebrating local events. The ladies sew and craft for hospitals and needy organisations. They also have junior members and hope they will carry on the tradition of service and inclusion. The most important thing about the Galston branch is the kindness and generosity of its’ members. They care about each other, their neighbours, and those needing assistance. Their gatherings are joyful and purposeful, welcoming visitors and new members. This past year has been tough for Galston, as with many other groups, and they are very much looking forward to 2021, making plans and not deterred by the difficulties ahead. By joining or supporting the CWA you can help make our community and the world a better place to live.
We are so grateful to Australian Seniors for the opportunity to be in the running for such a generous prize. It has been very difficult to fundraise in the usual ways this past year and $1000 will go a long way in supporting our local charities.
Please pop into Australian Seniors at Castle Towers and cast your vote for CWA Galston whilst enjoying a complimentary coffee in an accredited COVID-safe store. Open Monday to Friday 9am – 5:30pm. Voting closes Wednesday 31st March.
After a very long hiatus, we are so pleased to resume our meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at the Galston Health & Resource Centre. Our first meeting for the year will be at 10am on Wednesday 10th February 2021. We would love to see you there.
