This year Geri Taylor from Viva Pilates sold artwork to raise money for the Eurobodalla team. Geri made handmade cards and donated 100% of the proceeds to the clients, staff and support workers to have a special Christmas treat. Many thanks to Geri and to everyone who bought one of her beautiful cards.

On Saturday (November 23) Moruya’s Riverside Park was filled with young people who had a message – domestic violence is not tolerated here. Full article below:
Second Bite delivers supplies to SEWACS to support women and children affected by domestic violence and homelessness in the Eurobodalla region.
Second Bite sources fresh, nutritious food from supermarkets that is surplus to requirements and works with local community organisations to redistribute to those individuals and families who may be struggling to afford food. Food is collected from Coles Batemans Bay by volunteers and delivered to organisations in the region. SEWACS is a grateful recipient of the much needed items that enable families to be supported.
The Bega community has come together to help raise awareness of the impact of violence.
The Bega Valley Domestic and Sexual Violence Committee hosted its annual street march protest against violence on Wednesday, December 19 through the centre of town.
The march was originally scheduled for Sunday, November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, but was rescheduled due to unforeseen wet weather.
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.
