SEWACS (South East Women and Children’s Services) would also like to thank the community for their generous support of the White Ribbon Day stall held at Moruya Markets late last year.
SEWACS would also like to thank artist Loretta Parsley for making available a beautiful piece of art which was raffled on the day. At the stall face painting was offered and information on support services was made available. Eurobodalla Domestic Violence volunteers collected $600 to support the work being done to support families affected by domestic violence.
Members of Deep River Choir contributed their time and some noise to help raise awareness,
accompanied by volunteers.
Donations from Bunnings and K Mart made it possible for the stall to be held as well as goodies to be hand out.
