Dry July: In July, an average of 11,181 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer. No one asks for cancer, so why not go Dry this July to raise funds for people affected by cancer. Funds raised through Dry July go towards cancer support organisations across Australia, to help improve patient comfort, care and wellbeing. Having a month off alcohol also has great health benefits, such as sleeping better, having more energy and of course, no hangovers! So you’re not only helping others, you’re helping yourself. It’s a win-win!
Salvos Red Shield Appeal: Major Mark Williamson is coordinating the local Red Shield Appeal in Canowindra. “This year we’re concentrating our efforts on static collection points rather than door-knocking,” he said. “I’m pleased that we have been given permission to receive donations outside IGA each day from Monday 21st May until Friday 25th May and on Saturday morning, 26th May, outside the Canowindra Pharmacy. My biggest need at the moment, though, is for volunteers to collect at these spots,” Major Mark said. Contact Major Mark Williamson on 0466 150 219 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
