The Central Coast Womens Golf Association (CCWGA) has raised a whopping $25,000 for Lifeline over the past 12 months.

The 10 golf clubs on the Central Coast are all members of the association, with ladies at each club organising events to raise funds for the district charity and also running raffles to boost the donation.

An CCWGA spokesperson said Lifeline had been chosen as the district charity in 2020 and this has been extended into 2021 with COVID-19 restrictions leading to many fundraisers being cancelled.

“Lifeline does an amazing job on the Central Coast supporting people with mental health related challenges, and since early last year when COVID-19 first became an issue, the number of people needing their support has increased dramatically,” the spokesperson said.

“Despite the disruptions caused by COVID restrictions, the ladies at all of the clubs have done a magnificent job of raising money for Lifeline Central Coast.

“In August 2020 the CCWGA donated $10,000 to them, and in August 2021 donated another $15,000.

“There are still some events to be run between now and Christmas, and the target is to donate another $10,000 of which close to $5,000 has already been raised.”
