Dubbo: fundraising for Can Assist
Can Assist Dubbo has a new executive. Fran Ellis President, Rosie Gavel Snr Vic President, Jackie Walkie Vice President, Janet Ruskin Rowe Treasurer and Fitz McKay Secretary.
Because of COVID fundraising has not happened, however, we have had lots of donations. Recently We have had a good raffle sold downtown over six days which raised 2 ½ thousand dollars. We have found if we sell something with our raffle, ie plants, jams, etc. people love it and we make a lot more money. We have an excellent lady in Melva Blake who pots plants and Jenny Slack Smith makes jam endlessly. Also one of our members, Robin Englert has been making little baby knitted bears with our insignia attached and they are fast becoming an emblem.
Regional Australia Bank also help with their customer incentive and we received the most ever from the bank of $5500.00
The money boxes scattered around town are great money makers and advertising so look out for them when you are out and about.
