The Woy Woy branch of the Country Women’s Association has received a $600 donation from the Inner Wheel Club of Terrigal to put towards their Sock It To Me campaign.
The branch is one of four groups that came together earlier this year to launch the fundraiser which is aiming to raise $20,000 to buy every volunteer firefighter on the Central Coast a pair of fire resistant socks.
Branch president Ms Jane Bowtell said the donation would go a long way to helping the groups’ involved reach their goal.
“Thank you to the Inner Wheel Club of Terrigal for their amazing donation to Sock It To Me,” said Ms Bowtell.
“We’ve already purchased 225 pairs of socks and are just over a quarter of the way to our goal,” she said.
Ms Bowtell said volunteer firefighters were not supplied with fire resistant socks as part of their uniforms and that they often had to purchase them from specialist retailers at their own expense.
