Club Mudgee is in the spirit of giving by making donations to assist the work of a number of worthwhile local organisations.
CEO of Mudgee Disability Support Services, Christine Puxty, said that this was the first time they sought donations in this way.
“We’ve never gone into the community for support before and this has really been our first attempt,” she said.
“We approached Club Mudgee to see if they could help us and they’ve more than helped us.
“This will support our clients and will help us do our house up and buy things that they’ve been in need of for a long time.
“We’ve also started a new respite house which is need of furniture, linen and all the rest.”
Mudgee Disability Support Services’s donation was funded through the Club Grants program.
Club Mudgee also donated to the Mudgee Churches Association Community Christmas Lunch through Club Grants as well.
The president of the St Vinnies Conference, Brian McCarney, said their donation will be put towards assisting those in the community who are struggling to make ends meet.
“This generous donation will help us help anyone who comes to us,” he said.
“Unfortunately in this day and age there is an increasing need for assistance.
“We assist with a whole range of resources such as water, firewood, food, accommodation, clothing, and kitchen goods, the food is the main thing.”
The Vinnies donation was funded from proceeds from a barbecue fundraiser ahead of the Club’s Christmas toy raffle last Sunday.
The Club also made a donation to the local Legacy Widows.
“It enabled them to have a very nice Christmas Luncheon on Saturday, December 7,” President of Mudgee/North West Legacy, Ron Spithill said.
