Village residents raise $1050 for bushfire appeal

Residents at a Woy Woy retirement village have raised $1050 for the Salvation Army Bushfire Appeal.

Village resident Ms Thea Brayshaw said Deepwater Court was the “small village with a big heart,” with residents raising the funds through their Australia Day barbecue.

“Being such a small village of 42 villas, it was surprising to all that the sum of $1050 dollars was raised,” Ms Brayshaw said.

“An invitation was sent to Umina’s Salvation Army Captain Lesley Newton to attend our monthly dinner on February 19.

“One of our residents, Ms June Ross, was celebrating her 90th birthday on that day, so we gave her the honour of presenting the cheque to Lesley on behalf of the residents.

“The residents of Deepwater Court are proud to have contributed to such a worthy cause,” Ms Brayshaw said.
