Volunteering is a gratifying thing to do - and it's wonderful to be part of such an organisation. You may ask - What skills can I bring - knitting, craft, sewing, cooking, selling raffle tickets, work on street stalls, filling vending machines - it's endless.
Donations over $2 are tax deductable. One hundred per cent of all donations to the Auxiliary are used to purchase equipment for Moruya Hospital and Community Health.
The next fundraising event is a two day Book Fair at 62 Queen St Moruya, Friday August 8 from 9am to 3pm and Saturday 9 from 9am to 1pm. There will be lots of great books. Saturday will include a cake, jam and marmalade stall.
