Whyalla NHW Area 264 have been hard at work this October and November selling raffle tickets to raise funds for their local Foodbank. In efforts to support the local community, every December the group selects a local charity to make donations to.
The group were committed to the cause and attended the Whyalla Westlands Shopping Centre twice a week for six weeks, promoting the raffle and selling tickets. Through their determination they raised a fantastic $850!
On Friday 9 December the group and their Police Coordinator Senior Constable Keren Burke had the pleasure of presenting the raised funds to the Foodbank.
Foodbank Manager, Zoe Norman, was very thankful for the donation.
"It's amazing! The money this NHW group have raised will probably feed about 1,700 people in Whyalla, with every $1 usually feeding two people," she said.
